    Interesting, though impressive as it is, that the 10sec barrier is still discussed by media as "elusive and coveted" considering how well over 100 sprinters have gone sub 10. Further, since Bolt emerged, it is notable to recall how in more than one World Championship and Olympic final, since 2008, the talk was something on the order of "if you don't run sub 9.8...you won't medal".

    In a number of these recent videos that show him working on start he is not-IMO-up high enough on his fingers at set. He has too much surface area his fingers are in contact with to clear his hands off of the track as CF would have said.
    It could well be the angle as the straight ahead down the track shot he seems to be in a better hand position.

    Stormin Norman is a guy Charlie and I met forever ago. I recently met him on the subway and he asked if I wanted to do the commentating on his online radio show. I introduced him to T-Slow as I thought he would be perfect to give insight and interest to the Olympic feed. I declined.

    When watching the Fundamentals 1 Strength and Speed video today, I found what I believe Charlie's response would be at the 57:56 mark. If any of you have the video, please watch it.

    Yeah Charlie had very little tolerance watching drills that made no sense. Worse, drills that actually made fast people slow.

    I'm really happy that line wasn't edited out. I literally laughed out loud when studying the video; it was totally unexpected.
