I'm a track athlete and I'm interested in what's your favorite event. (To watch and to perform in)

Perform:

1. 400m: My best race. My PB is 52.88 seconds at age 15.
2. 4x100m: Simply the best feeling ever. The whole school is cheering for you, and everyone's in euphoria when we take gold. PB: 46.91 seconds.
3. Long Jump: Just fly :)... for 5.60 meters.
4. 200m: Usually last individual race of the competition, so no other event is going on. Everyone's watching... :) PB: 24.52 seconds.
5. Shot Put: Simply funny to see the look on people's faces when I throw farther than them (I look really skinny. BMI of 20.5) PB: 11.21 meters (5kg) 13.96 meters (4kg)

Watch:

1. 100m: Two words: USAIN BOLT!
2. 110m hurdles: The only event China wins :) (Chinese pride!)
3. High Jump: Just wow.
4. 200m: BOLT BOLT BOLT!
5. Long Jump: Usain Bolt will be competing in the long jump soon :) Can't wait. 9 meter (...or 10 meter?) barrier going down.

I like the 100, 200, and 400m races the best, they are so short, but you feel so good after you win.

noooo way jose. my thread has been around for almost 10 full months and has over 21 pages of posts. there is no reason that all running talk should be split across multiple threads. I'm very supportive of fellow athletes however i believe that we should revolve around a common thread.. i could see if mine was unactive but its getting posted on almost dailey. i'm sure you overlooked it.
may i kindly direct you here- http://forum.tip.it/...running-thread/

I agree with this (although I got completely ignored when I pointed out that I had a thread, I'd rather it didn't happen again).

lol george, i have to admit. the entire time i spent writing my response i was thinking of how you must have felt when i made a running thread. wow that was a long time ago. i know we're on good terms now, and if i'd let my thread fall into inactivity i probably wouldn't care as much. but seeing as we have a nice collective of runners over on my thread, i think its best for the runners on these boards to stay true to one thread. I mean, who am i to say that new running threads can't be created? its just common sense that theres only a need for one thread. also, i just realized i may have come off as a bit too harsh in my post. i'll edit that.

Meh, I shouldn't have even mentioned it. I love the new thread, and I could barely care less that it's not mine <3:

Track and field is what I've been doing for last 11 years. I've specialized at high jumping in a last few years.
My PB so far is 2.12m (6'11,5")

My goal atm is 2,18m which should get me to the U23 European Champs.

Other events are quite crappy tho.
100m ~12s
long jump 5,85m (haven't done this for quite a few years already, I should jump like 6,70m by now)
pole vault 3,70m

Some of the things you can control by yourself to some extent are:
Run speed: steady and relaxed in the beginning and aggressive and accelerating in the last 4 steps.
Your body angle should be as much away from the bar as possible in the apex.
The take-off direction should be towards the end of the bar not directly at it. This will keep you flying up for a longer time.

And ofcourse practice practice practice.
