Is 17-year-old Yoshihide Kiryu the Japanese Usain Bolt? He sure looks like it
By Ben Rohrbach | Prep Rally – 17 hours ago

Yoshihide Kiryu might not roll off the tongue like Usain Bolt, but the 17-year-old Japanese sprinting sensation is lightning fast just the same.

In a startling performance that left everyone in his dust, Kiryu covered 100 meters in 10.01 seconds at the Mikio Oda Memorial in Hiroshima, Japan, tying the junior world record on April 29, according to the Hurriyet Daily News (h/t Huffington Post).

Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up
Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm
