Here is a quick video of Tyson Gay giving advice on the importance of the start, and some pointers on how to start in the 100 meters. It’s actually a promo for Eastbay and Adidas.
First of all, I like the fact that Tyson Gay doesn’t say he’s the World’s Fastest Man, unlike the Michael Johnson – Donovan Bailey Worlds Fastest Man showdown in 1996 & 1997.
However, in the 4 pointers by Tyson, number 3 about getting your knees high is technically incorrect as having too high knees will cause your hips to drop.
Otherwise, his advice is good for aspiring sprinters. Not bad coming form a guy who ran 9.69!
