After looking over some races from last night
I notice Gatlin’s SL is well over 2.56 meters after 65 meters. If you look at his run at last year’s USATF NC’s during his 2nd round, you will see what I am talking about. Does anyone here
have any studies on Gatlin’s stride analysis.
His total 100m stride count was 43.3.
His long stride is similar to C Lewis during his peak days.
maybe kenny maybe.he runs very similiar to leroy burrell before 94/95.leroy flicked alot causing problems and his team decided it was time to change and advance,look what happened then great running plus another WR under his belt.
kenny just look at leroy during the 91wc or 92og then look at his WR run in 94(i think).the difference in his techique is great.his leg action is great,his acceleration is great and overall he was performing an identical race to his team-mate carl lewis.the difference is huge
if someone can post a link of leroys WR race in lausanne and also his runs earlier(91/92) to demonstrate what i’m saying
I’m a MASSIVE Gatlin fan…Its interesting that you mention the overstriding…His technique works wonders for him…It actually looks like he’s bounding with every stride. Maurice has also changed the way he runs. There’s a big change in the way he ran prior to the injury he had in the Edmonton final. What exactly denotes ‘overstriding’?? These guys look comfortable with the technique and are running amazing times…From looking at endless footage (especially Maurice and Gatlin) I have noticed that when the foot lands it ‘slaps’ the track in a paw type motion.
