Usain Bolt VS Asafa Powell's Rome Diamond League Video - The Importance of Strong Speed Endurance

>> May 27, 2011

Two monsters great sprinters of Jamaica, Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell came face to face at the 2011 Samsung Diamond League (Golden Gala) in Rome, Italy on May 26, 2011. It was the 2011 debut by Bolt and second by Powell.

Asafa Powell was leading from the gun and seems hardly to be challenged. But the World's fastest man Usain Bolt who has started with a very slow reation time suddenly intercepted Powell at a distance of 10 metres from the finishing line. Usain Bolt clocked a time of 9.91s, narrowly beat Powell who stopped the clock at 9.93s. France's Christophe Lemaitre, who became the first whiteman to break 10.00s barrier last year, came third in 10.00s. Bolt's time is two hundredths of a second slower than World leading time 9.89s set by his compatriot, Steve Mulling a few days earlier.

In spite of Powell has extra explosive reaction, speed, power and strength but all was not suffice to win a competition which was attended by athletes of the same level with him. Therefore the race proved the importance of a strong speed endurance in the 100 metres as one of aspects of determine success.

Moral of the story: Even if you have a problem with your acceleration, don't give up! you still can win a race of your level by improving the top end speed or speed endurance.
