Block Start analysis

Posted by Latif Thomas

Here is a block start analysis I did recently. In it, I break down the start of a female high school 100m hurdler all the way over the first hurdle. Early in the video, I compare this athlete to a beautifully violent 3 point block start from one of the world’s fastest 100m sprinters.
