This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. EnglishESPA?OLPortuguêsThe Perfect 100The first competition in the first modern Olympics in 1896 was the 100-meter dash, with American Thomas Burke winning gold in a time of 12 seconds. More than a century later, the 100 meters remains one of the more popular events at the Olympics, and the winning times have steadily improved. At the 2012 Games in London, Jamaican Usain Bolt won gold with an Olympic-record time of 9.63 seconds, nearly 2.5 seconds faster than Burke ran in 1896. (Bolt also holds the world record of 9.58, set at the 2009 world championships.)The 100-meter dash may be the fastest event at the Olympics, but there is so much that goes on during those 10 seconds. Heres a look at the science and technique in the race, along with the sprinters views of those 100 meters.By Jim Caple ? ESPN.comTHE STARTING BLOCKSWhen getting into the blocks, author Warren Doscher writes in The Art of Sprinting, the strongest leg should be in the forward pedal of the starting block [1]. The fingertips should be set just behind the starting line (not touching it) [2] with the arms mostly straight but the elbows unlocked [3].In addition to listening for the starters gun, sprinters are keen to have their feet properly set in the blocks. Bill FrakesListen for the gun Apart from the men wondering how they might beat Bolt, there is one thing sprinters say they are focused on after they position themselves in the starting blocks.Listen for the gun, says English Gardner, Americas top female sprinter. Nothing else matters but that. You cant do anything else until the gun goes off. The worst thing you can do is false start. Its one and done in our sport. I just try to listen for the gun and react.The rules used to be that you could false start once and be given a second chance. That was changed in 2003. You can even be disqualified if you start too soon after the gun fires. Research has shown that a person cannot hear the gun and react in under a tenth of a second. Therefore, if you start sooner than a tenth of a second after the gun, it will be considered a false start. And youre done.A lot of races are won and lost because a sprinter does not react properly to the gun, says two-time Olympic 100 medalist Ato Boldon of Trinidad and Tobago. You dont want to anticipate the gun; you want to react to it. Theres a difference. If you anticipate it and youre wrong, youre going to be out.You dont want to anticipate the gun; you want to react to it. Theres a difference. If you anticipate it and youre wrong, youre going to be out.In addition to listening for that starters pistol, Warren Doscher writes in The Art of Sprinting, sprinters must make sure their feet are properly set and that the balls of their feet, ankles, knees and hip joints are in alignment. Their head should be down. They should take a deep breath and hold it.And then, they must react to the gun.When getting into the blocks, author Warren Doscher writes in The Art of Sprinting, the strongest leg should be in the forward pedal of the starting block [1]. The fingertips should be set just behind the starting line (not touching it) [2] with the arms mostly straight but the elbows unlocked [3].THE FIRST 10 METERSThere are various types of starts, including the jump and the get up and go starts that may put you out front initially but wont help you. Writes Doscher: One can only accelerate forward when the foot is on the track applying backward force to it. During acceleration out of the blocks, a sprinter will drive out in a 45-degree angle [1], moving his arms in opposite directions in a large range of motion [2] with one arm driving forward and the other driving backward. After the starting gun fires, sprinters have to be careful too not straighten up too quickly. Ian Walton/Getty ImagesLike blinking, like breathingAmerican Justin Gatlin says the start is all about instinct.Im like, All right, Im waiting for the gun and getting set, says Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic 100 gold medalist. If youre thinking, Are my arms too wide, are my arms too close together? its over for you. You just have to go on instinct. Its like blinking, like breathing.Less experienced runners might try to rise up quickly and take quick steps to put themselves into an early lead, but two-time Olympic 100 gold medalist Carl Lewis differs. He says the key is not to take immediate quick steps, but to take longer, more powerful strides because that will help you farther along in the race.If your car runs out of gas, you dont go ahead and pull it, Lewis says. You get behind and push it. And when you push it, you stay on the first step and extend all the way until the next step. And all the way until you extend to the next step. And thats how you get out of the blocks.Thats exactly what I tell my young kids, says Boldon, now a track and field analyst for NBC Sports who also does some coaching. If you have to push something heavy, youre not going to push it from a 180-degree angle. You have to get some relative angle to the back of that car. Youre trying to overcome inertia and gravity in the first part of that race.There are various types of starts, including the jump and the get up and go starts that may put you out front initially but wont help you.

During acceleration out of the blocks, a sprinter will drive out in a 45-degree angle [1], moving his arms in opposite directions in a large range of motion [2] with one arm driving forward and the other driving backward. 20 METERSIn 2012, Jamaicas Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, center, quickly kicked it into high gear while winning her second consecutive Olympic gold in the 100. Mark Ralston/AFP/GettyImagesSlowly but surely stand upBy now, the sprinters have pushed hard to get themselves moving, and hopefully they are more of a Ferrari than a Ford F650 truck. Its time to start speeding up without standing up too tall, too quickly.You dont want to rush your transition and snap your head up, because you have all this good momentum going forward, Boldon says. You want to slowly but surely stand up to your upright running position.You want to relax your head and stay low in a pushing position so your first 10-15 steps, which will get you to 20-25 meters, will be low, efficient and powerful.The total strides in the 100 range from 40-41 for Bolt to around 50 for the top women. Doscher writes that to lessen the braking effect of the foot when runners step on the ground, they should have their knees slightly bent when doing so. In Sprinting, author Ryan McGill says the run
