Are there really any practical implications to this? At the end of the day, you’re still going to have to run 60m/100m/200m and try to be competitive, at least relative to your level.
The practical implications in my mind are teaching acceleration patterns. If you tell a kid push for 20m will he figure it out? If you tell a kid push with your right foot 4 times will he figure it out? I’m a big fan of steps as someone who coaches hurdles and wants flawless relays. Also, as another poster stated, you might change your technical/acceleration workouts based on this. You chould alter based on both level and gender. Overall just something to think about.
