    Nice running style. His contact time on the ground looks impressive. I wonder what that contact time is? Very FloJo-like running style in the lower body.

    "... 9.98 seconds for 100 meters on Saturday at his Region 6A-3 meet in Webster, Texas, doing so on a wind reading of 4.2 meters/second, which would make the attempt outside legal requirements.

    Which means: This won't be a current No. 2 world time, or a new U20 world lead. Diving deeper, the effort also converts down to 10.16 seconds on a 0.0 wind and 10.07 on a 2.0 plus-wind"

    Wind aided or not, very impressive for a high schooler. Why aren’t we recruiting him? Or will he turn pro ala Allyson Felix?

    He's already committed and signed to UGa. He's also quite the overall athlete. On the day he also jumped 25 feet, 2 inches to win the long jump, and teamed with Job Trahan, Malik Campbell and Denzel Blackwell on Strake Jesuit's 400-meter relay team to capture first in a time of 40.72.

    The 1,600-meter relay, which Boling also anchored, finished the day with a speedy exclamation point, winning in 3:13.7

    Exactly. You got the point. Who cares about the particulars. The boy flat out burned up the track! Did you hear that crowd! Man that was an exciting run!

    Very impressive. Was the 25’ LJ wind-aided? What kind of times was he running prior to this 9.98?

    No wind factor but it wasn't his PR anyway. He jumped 26'3.5'' one month ago with 1.8 wind.

    Believe it or not this was his first season ever running the 100 open event. Prior times this season....

    ...and he long jumps, runs the 400, plus anchors the 4x400. I like runners who have running styles that are interesting like Michael Johnson, Clancy Edwards, FloJo, Usain Bolt, and Valeriy Borzov. They're all fun to watch. Pay no mind to the bigots and racists in the comments section and enjoy the interview. Lord knows we have too many racists and bigots in the world and those who shamelessly and unconditionally support them...

    Cool - "I don't care about conversions." Exactamundo! Times adjusted for wind-aided runs are just stupid. I haven't checked but I've not seen any times adjusted for wind-hindered times. Like whoa, imagine how fast that time could have been if it wasn't for that hurricane wind he/she had to run into, or something like that. I exaggerate but you get my point.

    Interesting side note to Boling’s 9.98, the athlete who placed third in that race was Dorian Hewitt. His time was 10.33. He is a Trojan football signee. He played safety on the Texas large school state champs.

    If both he and Chiston are allowed to participate in track, they would be awesome additions to a already solid and young sprint group.

    I've posted it before but it bears repeating based on your post. From after the Bama/UGa NC game a couple years ago...

    Wow, I’m almost more impressed with that. Not too many 26’ HS long jumpers.

    I love your gif avatar! Too bad the gif running effect didn't translate over. Maybe there's a headwind? Lol ; )

    Ha! Yeah, it’s goofy how some sites don’t handle simple files. A house fan is enough of a headwind for me nowadays.

    When I was coaching I always tried to encourage the football players to go out for track. We use to always have great turn out because they realized they could get faster and get and stay in shape. Now a days, I am afraid they have become so specialized that they are being put into 7 on 7 off season leagues instead of running track, wrestling, playing baseball or other sports.

    I think it is a shame because you can get a burn out factor playing same sport year round. Plus, although it might be your secondary sport a lot of kids have great memories of competing in track/wrestling etc.

    Coaches in each sport put a lot of pressure on kids to pick just one. They don't want to deal with the conflict. As a parent of a sometimes 2-sport/same-season athlete, it was always tough to make choices and invariable one coach or the other would get pissed....at the kid. SO wrong.

    Not only burnout but it's healthier for the body overall to play different sports, use different muscle and joint groups.

    FloJo, one of my fave runners regarding technique and style...add fashion style too ; ) This is a great breakdown of how technically proficient she was. Note the pull down with each step from her knee extension generating lots of power from her quads - gorgeous! Hamstrings perfectly lengthened out and her core body is steady. I mean, it's beautiful to watch her run. The angle of a female sprinter's hips is noted but not too many people realize it makes a difference between men and women regarding knee cross-over action but also arm action, which isn't mentioned but I think worth noting...I hope to find video of Borzov that shows his starting block technique - unusual and I have not seen any other sprinter use it since...Enjoy!

    Oh wonderful! I am so happy having found this. Mentioned on my earlier post about Matt Boling was a concept called contact time. This video of FloJo demonstrates this perfectly. Her knees together (meaning lined up) as she contacts the ground is the most efficient ever for male or female sprinter. Enjoy!
