    I don't know, but my 8 year-old son does the same thing. I have been trying to help him fix this for 2 years, but to no avail. He is left-handed, but not sure if that has something to do with it. Maybe I shouldn't worry about it until he runs 9.75.

    On physical maturity alone that guy should get faster. Not sure i'd mess with it too much. I don't think it's that bad though, it's not as un-symmetrical to the point of disaster.

    Here's a podcast with coach Caryl Smith Gilbert from last year: http://sportscoachradio.com/usc-head...en-leadership/
    As mentioned before in this thread as a coach she was a protege of Tony Wells, as an athlete also worked under Kersee and Seagrave.

    His coach is coming to an AC conference being held in July here in Toronto, and I know De Grasse's chiropractor well- I'll find out!

    I wonder why such a young healthy guy would need a chiro? Hope the chiro doesn't try to give him any unnecessary manipulations. I know of a few guys who went to chiros for hamstring injuries (unrelated to a back problem) and got their backs manipulated and now have permanently loose spinal ligaments and many more problems than just bad hamstrings! So many quacks in chiropractic!
    On another note, I noticed that De Grasse walks with his feet turned way out. I wonder why? Maybe ask his chiro why.
