The first ever Irish Sprints, Hurdles and Jumps Network was held at the AIT in Athlone on Saturday 16 April 2016. It was an honour to be asked to provide the first keynote address on “Fundamental Speed Concepts” to open the event.
Later in the day I was also asked to undertake a practical workshop on the basics of acceleration where I demonstrated the elements of the “roll-over” or “falling start”, which Kevin Tyler first introduced to me when he moved to UK Athletics in 2009. My presentations from the day are available below for download:
Thanks to everyone for coming to the day and I’m now looking forward to the next network event later in the year.
