Working on the first 20m acceleration phase. This is the area of a sprinter’s race that has the most potential to positively (or negatively!) affect change in a 100-200m, considering the amount of “form consciousness” an athlete has to have in a very short period of time. @_sarahdickerson_ is focusing on the drive phase after leaving the blocks by doing a wall drill, emphasizing minimum ground contact time and a high knee drive. There is a lot of hip engagement here which you can see in the “lift” of her torso with each drive. This is necessary to keep the hips from dropping in order to maintain a more powerful drive position. Always working to be better than yesterday.
