THE WARM-UP
Run Like You Stole Something examines many of the sporting conundrums
that are discussed at the game, in the lounge room, at the pub, or around the
coffee machine on a Monday morning. Every week, spectators, players,
coaches, commentators and punters alike witness sporting phenomena that
seem to defy logical understanding.
We embarked on careers as sports scientists as a way of combining a love
of sport with a need to know why things happened the way they did. We met
as Exercise Science undergraduate students and found we shared an annoyance with high-profile sports commentators1 who spouted half-truths and
full fallacies in the course of calling great sporting contests. These so-called
experts explained away the outcomes of heroic sporting deeds as one would
describe art or the roll of a dice – transcendental or just plain lucky.
We were equally frustrated by the lack of communication between scientists and the greater sports-loving masses. These scientists were beginning
to understand why Greg Norman ‘choked’. They discovered some of the
tricks up Shane Warne’s spinning sleeve. Their jaws dropped when discovering how close Tour de France cyclists rode to the limits of human
endurance. They breathed heavily about the causes of a stitch
when running. They visited
their bookies after calculating
the importance of home
ground advantage to the final
score. And they kept these
discoveries to themselves.
‘Coach’ Farrow and ‘Doc’
Kemp, as we soon became
known, knew that sports fans of all backgrounds
were hungry for explanations of the hows and whys of what they saw from
‘Run like you stole
something’
A phrase yelled with a guttural roar
to gently persuade a misjudged putt towards
the hole or as encouragement to a
wingman on the burst.

the stands or experienced themselves when competing out on the ground. It
was time for something – or someone – to bring truth and well-grounded
sporting research to the people. It was time to spread the word. It was time to
set the record straight. Our ever-popular radio show, Run Like You Stole
Something, was the first step in our campaign to rid the sporting world of
myths and half-truths – to bring the facts and the science behind the score
line to sports lovers everywhere. It is now in its seventh year on Melbourne’s
