Ian Thorpe: He looks up while sprinting and note the timing of his breathing!
The timing of my breathing is off and often during a sprint my arm throws water into my mouth. At the UCLA meet I was so introverted about the timing of my breathing during two 50scm sprints that I just did not breathe at all. Times suffered as result but I am in the lab working on it by checking out films, DVDs and You Tubes to study it and get different points of view. My breathing issue should be fixed in about 30,000 meters! That's the amount of work it usually takes me to get something right.
Note Thorpe's head position: he does not look down when sprinting.
