    that is no body's fault but the vitriolic posters who are misguided.

    He is thin for sure, but I wouldn't be confident the quoted figures are correct. The height/ weight data for athletes is generally very unreliable.

    I have seen Shalane Flanagan up-close and she is whippet-thin also.

    I'm not sure there's much difference with Klosterhalfen.

    All elite distance runners look anorexic in person but the difference is that Klosterhalfen looks rail thin on TV, so I can only imagine what she looks like in person.

    I've had lots of friends who were elite distance runners...male and female....and at the time I never thought they looked anorexic....but looking at photos now it is amazing how thin they and I look then.... you kind of got use to it....one photo of a very good friend of mine running in 1988 I looked at recently and I can't believe how thin she is in the picture... she ran in the Olympics but was injured just before the games and had a pretty poor race...

    I saw Flanagan at USAXC several years ago. She looks thinner in person than on TV, just like every one else.

    But the thinnest person I saw among the elite runners was Delilah Dicrescenzo.

    And I don't think she is much different from Klosterhalfren.

    For what it's worth, at 18 I was actually slightly taller and lighter than that. This is despite not doing that much physical exercise and eating, as far as I could tell, at least as much as any of my schoolmates. Being British, there was the odd beer or two involved as well.

    I am about 80kg now.
