Another data point on compression socks

April 19th, 2009

The Mt. SAC Relays, a traditional season-opener for many North American track and field stars, has been taking place this weekend. Further to our discussion of compression socks last week, I note this photo by Image of Sport‘s Kirby Lee of U.S. 5,000-metre runner Chris Solinsky showing off the latest in knee-high Nikes.solinsky

While Solinsky ran a fine time of 13:18.41, he did wind up getting outkicked by the other two runners in the picture, offering further evidence that facial hair and tattoos still trump compression socks in the final straightaway.
