Also in Rio, on August 18, Olympic athlete Ben Kanute used the new Stryd to monitor his performance and efficiency in the Olympic Triathlon event. Stryd is now collaborating with Ben and his coaches to analyze these data and plans to release findings when analysis is complete and stakeholders grant permission.
Leading coaches and athletes who have used Stryd say it is revolutionizing running.
"Power is the direct measure of running efficiency. It has the potential to revolutionize running. It knows how efficient you are, how hard you train, and how well you pace yourself in a race."
― Craig Alexander, Three-Time Ironman World Champion
"The power meter is one of the best ways to improve running economy."
― Joe Friel, Former Chairman of the USA Triathlon National Coaching Commission
And athletes training with Stryd have already seen revolutionary changes to their performance.
"I ran with Stryd at Ironman Cairns/Aus last Sunday. It helped me very much to control the pace after the 180km ride and finally pushed me up to 7th place in my age category (50-54) … Due to the nice pace controlling by Stryd, I earned the Kona slot, too. Many thanks to Stryd and the Stryd team!"
— Akio Yamauchi, Triathlete
"I paced with power — number I trained with and expected to see, and had near perfect mile splits. And as a result, I never hit the wall."
— Rachel Zambrano, Runner and Endurance Coach
