We had some great photos taken on the day by Neil Witter and I've decided to use some of them to show some really good technique in action.
Great starting drive. Forward lean looking down.
Midstride- arms at 90 degrees, looking straight down the track, not at any of the other runners
Ball Throw Sequence
Arm Back whole body wound up to make the throw
Second last step, just about to throw, looking up where he wants the ball to go.
Final step forward arm throwing as fast as he can over his shoulder,still looking up where the ball should go
Ball shooting up high and fast, his arm has followed through
Ball still traveling up and his body has followed through keeping behind the line.
Start of the long jump good forward lean driving with her arms.
Middle distance start. Concentrating, forward foot behind the line.
Great concentration, all have 90 degree bend of their arms. Running straight down their lanes.
