we normally spend a great deal of time talking about the Jeters (trust me I don’t mind), Bolts, Powells, and Gays of track and field. I would ask to spend a bit of time on another athlete who was dynamic in college but just can’t seem to break the glass ceiling of the upper elite. Shalonda.
I like to watch athletes enter the pro arena and progressively make improvements in technique and mature overall in the sport. Shalonda has been gettin whooped up on by allyson felix since HS and her form hasn’t changed much over the years. When you watch her hips rotate from front view they seem to overcompensate somehow. It seems to cause her torso to shift a bit resulting in lost forward movement.
I know a bit of hip rotation toward center line is considered as productive but it seems a bit much. First of all, is this a problem? Secondly, if so how would you fix it?
