"Hood turned away and walked along the edge of the lawn. Somebody whistled behind him. He look round and saw Balek at a fair distance. All at once, Balek spurted forward. He kept his arms stretched at his sides, touching his thighs, and covered the ground in stiff-legged strides, like a big bird running. Hood said 'Jesus' under his breath. On the face of it, it was the most awkward possible gait--but as a dash from a standing start, he had never seen anything like it. He wondered whta Roger Bannister, against whom he had run, would say."
