Default Does Weight Lifting Make a Better Athlete?

An intersting article.

Seems like for the most part, weight training does benefit athletic performance (duh!!), but I don't know why they seem to focus so much on long distance runners. Yeah, weight lifting may or may not improve your marathon time, but look at the benefits of weight training for so many other sports.
