The Rocket Sprint Start (2011)

Rocket Sprint Start Cover 200Anyone who saw Armin Hary of Germany at the 1960 Olympic Games will agree on two facts: one, he was one of the fastest starters of all time, and two, his pickup in the first 20 yards was amazing.

The original book was printed in 1964. A careful film analysis of Armin Hary’s form, taken from hundreds of slow motion pictures of the 1960 Olympic Games, revealed seven ways in which his form differed from the rest of the sprinters. In each case they were all a definite contribution toward faster block clearance and faster pickup.

Bud Winter pioneered modern Track and Field, while creating the “Science of Sprinting” with his thorough, step by step detailed analysis and scientific studies.

The new 2011 edition is co-authored by Jimson Lee.
