that is crazy, I read about this, they got rid of the A and B standard, they trying to set a high standard to filter great athletes from the awesome athletes.
to set up a great olympic event.
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
------------------------------------------------------------------------

�Strength comes from the legs, Power comes from the torso and Speed comes from the arm.� � Al Vermeil
Arm also aids the legs in driving it down with power - seifullaah73

I am always amazed by the medium distances ( or is it long sprints? ) if you brake them down:
1:45 800m is 8 consecutive 13.1s 100m.
3:36 1500m is 15 consecutive 14.4s 100m.
13:25 5000m is 50 consecutive 16.1s 100m. 50! non stop!! 16 sec each!!! are you fucking kidding me???
woot

yes and that's why alwyn cosgrove and the like's bullshit about "would you rather look like a sprinter or a distance runner" is so dumb. because distance runners's pace is what passes for "sprinting" for most people.
