Having been a track and field athlete, coach of track and field and a fan of athletics; adding some form of strength training of course 'could' improve the performances in all athletes. The question isn't only the percentage of weighs lifted and intervals performed...Its often more the explanation of getting the athlete to buy into how this training is directly related to their specific need to go faster and minimize injury, soreness that heavy feeling often accompanied with strength training without proper stretching, attention to joints and ligament, core and range of motion. Just my 2 cents.

Like everything else, It's finding the right Balance to suit the individual and meet the goals that they seek to achieve.

It's great to see studies being made public over how better to improve your performance in specific areas, I hope that they're stripped down into something that makes sense for the average person to understand and follow with results.
