100 meter video...losing speed

This is the tape of Indiana Girls State Trials. The girl in lane 2 (blue and white uniform) ran a 12.31 (FAT). She had about a 3 to 5 meter lead with about thirty meters to go and then was caught by the pack. I know that she pops straight up, but is that causing all her problems at the end of the race. I beleve her explosiveness, power and top end speed is the caliber of a sub 12 runner.

Any suggestions would be great…is her problem technical, strength, endurance and breathing.

i get the same message. Once you’ve fixed the link you could try posting this in the training/competition videos section, here http://www.charliefrancis.com/community/forumdisplay.php?f=71

This is from my experience so it may be different from hers but I used to be taking short and choppy steps out of the blocks and that tired me out at the end of the race and I would get passed at the end. Now I run with long strides out of the blocks and I catch people at the end of the race. Haven’t seen the video but I’m sure if you just work on the teachnical portion of her start she’d be a sub 12 runner.
