Oxygen consumptions were measured at different speeds on 6 marathon runners and two sub-4-minute milers. Regression lines fitted to plots of oxygen consumption against speed of running showed that body-weight is the main determinant of the rate of oxygen consumption at different speeds, the heavier man having much higher rates of oxygen consumption.
