differences 60 -100m

Are the 60m sprint and the first 60m(of a 100m sprint) runned in the same way?
Looking at indoor races the drive phase is shorter.
But,how to achieve this with training?Do you have to tell your athlete to coming up and be “upright” sooner?
Any thoughts ?

fulkrum,depends on what level you are talking about.the elite guys are accelerating the entire 60m both indoor and outdoors as they have the ability to accelerate to this point.(elite guys accelerate to 60m,maintain for 15-20 and maintain again if relaxation is in place)

now for amatures they may hit top @ 30-40m and maintain it indoors but outdoors over 100m its different but with training and specific training this canbe addressed.

Do you have to tell your athlete to coming up and be “upright” sooner?
Any thoughts ?

A-i would try to get your athlete to try to acelerate longer.by stepping up quicker interferes with the acceleration pattern so keep all the same.*****don’t forget that the indoors are a stepping stone for the outdoors.

hope this answers your question alittle more

I really agree with your analisys.
My doubt is caused from seeing some 60m indoor and 100m races. Looking at this races i see that some athletes steps up at about 40m.Off course they are still accelrating,but have a different “attitude” than the one i see on athletes running 100m at the same 40m distance.
Maybe i am wrong.
Ah,i am talking about elite level.
Thanks for your ansswer.

A different attitude towards the 60m seems irrational, since the fastest 60m times ever recorded are in fact en-route to 100m. Case in point: Ben Johnson and Maurice Greene both went 6.33 on their way to 9.79.

For the elite sprinter who peaks his velocity just beyond 60m, the 100m is the fastest race.
