Maximal velocity is the top-end speed the body can attain. After the acceleration phase or drive phase (the first part of the sprint race), the sprinter transitions to the max velocity phase of the race.

3 Key Point For Max Velocity Sprinting

  • Neutral pelvic alignment (run tall)
  • High heel recovery (bring the foot as high as the opposite knee)
  • Quick arm action (fast and coordinated with lower body)
