I’ll bet some of your coaches have instilled the basic mechanics and fundamentals in a good sprinting start, and along the way your coaches made minor adjustments to suit your style and physique.

Well here’s two different style of starts from two top world class sprinters, Tyson Gay and Usain Bolt. The below video clip shows the start, drive, acceleration and speed maintenance phases of both sprinters. The video is kinda grainy but bear with it.

Here’s below, the video shows photo-stills of the various phases of Usain Bolt starts in closer detail. Nice full extension and notice how far back his starting blocks are, obviously its because of his 1.96m frame. Again bear with the hip-hop loud annoying music.

Here’s another good article on sprints starts
