[quote author="Zack Trapp" date="1361663717"] There is no way 11.0 guys are accelerating all the way to 45 meters.
disagree…in most cases,yes they are, but they are accelerating relatively less at that point and just slightly up until about 50m or so. Brower timing gates from training says so.
4 seconds being weaker/slower athletes who are at 25-30 meters at that time period .
again I’m sorry but I have to disagree, a sprinter who’s able to cover 30m in roughly 4 seconds is usually not done accelerating at 30m or at the 4 sec mark granted that this same athlete runs well enough technically.
4sec/30m = approx 1.95+1.08+0.97 is rather fast and I don’t see any guy running .97 splits at 30m that are done accelerating at that point. Once again Brower timing says so.[/quote]
I was just suggesting that most guys in the 11’s will reach maxV in about 4-5 seconds…which would be 30m.
I would agree for sure that someone covering 30m in 4 seconds flat isn’t going to be done accelerating until at least 45m…unless they are some type of bobsleigh or football guy who puts more of an emphasis on acceleration.
