Kolby Monczko's curator insight, April 30, 2013 12:29 AM

How does the understanding of biomechanical principals improve an athlete's performance in their given skill or sport?

Why is it uncommon for proffesional athletes to have their technique corrected?

Nicholas Bray's curator insight, May 2, 2013 2:06 AM

During the senior phase of physical education (year 11-12) track and field is a sport that is covered and is quite often paired with the theory aspect of biomechanics. This page provies a video series which will enable students to get ideas of the ideal biomechanical model (Usain Bolt - Fastest man ever) for sprinting which is a base for a number of other events.
