Hi, I’m Jarryd Wallace, and I’m a paralympian.
Today we’re going to be talking about
the importance of consistency in block starts.
Being a 100m sprinter,
you have such a short period of time to focus on
what actually is happening in the race.
So you have to havea game plan going in.
So the block startsis where everything begins.
You want to make sure that you do the same thing every time youget in it,
and we’re going to go through a little bit of that today.
Before we address the block set-up,
I’d like to address what makes me a paralympian.
Six years ago, I had a running injury
that I had to have surgery for.
And I ended up having complications in the surgery,
and over a two-and-a-half-year period, I had ten surgeries
trying to save my leg.
Ended up being an amputation.
Ended up getting prostheticsand running devices,
and now I’m able to run at thehighest level
in track and field for the USParalympic team.
The blocks are the first andmost important part of a 100m race.
The set-up is one thingthat should never change.
Between you and your coachduring practice,
you need to come up with
what’s the best set-up for you
and the start that you desire.
For me, I take two stepsfrom the back line
to measure my front block.
I marked the groundwhere it is my heel
and I take another step – that’s where I set the front block.
Then from there, I take this front block,
Put my heel next to it, and measure that.
And four fingers, that’s where I set up the back block.
Now I know, any time I get into a race,
the blocks are no longer aconcern.
They’re going to bewhere they need to be
so that my body’s gonna to be where it needs to be
Come on runners, take your mark and set！
Once the starter says,”On your mark,”
consistency is still vital.
I take two steps over the blocks,
and once I get through the line
I take three steps past the line.
I take a deep breath in and I’m focusing on that line.
The reason I take three steps out is
the other athletes are behind me, I have no distractions,
and I’ve got tunnel vision on the pointI’m supposed to focus on.
Next thing I do is, I smile and I nod my head.
What that does is？it allows me to be confident.
It reminds me that I can win this race.
And now it’s time to get into the blocks.
I walk myself back,
I put my back foot just before the block
and I kick out my front leg, get it nice and relaxed,
and I bring it into itsposition.
Once the front foot’s set,
I bring the back foot onto the block,
put some tension on it and drop my knee to the ground.
From here, I walk my hands back,
clean my left hand,
place it on the track.
At this point, I look backforward.
I remind myself of that spot that I’m going to look at,
think about breathingand staying relaxed.
I clean off my right hand
and place it on the spot on the track.
Now I want to find my centre of gravity,
make sure that my shouldersare in line over my hands,
and then find a spot on thetrack
about three feet in front of the line that I can focus on.
I wait for the starterto say “Set!”
一旦发令员说 预备 我就做好预备姿势
Once he says,”Set,”I come up into my set position,
I breathe in, and wait for thegun.
Remember consistency is thekey.
