I read a short article in the paper yesterday by a sport scientist who suggested that Bolt's height might be what gives him such an enormous advantage. It went on to say that at 6'5'' Bolt is taller than the average sprinter so his long legs mean that he not only travels further than the competition with every stride but he needs to take fewer strides over the distance.
