Transforming Smoot Carter: Pre-Testing Part 2

0

Harrisonburg, VA- Nothing much to report here. As I mentioned in the previous entry I wanted Smoot to do a second round on some of the tests so I could get a better idea of what he was capable of. If logistically possible, I like to do quite a few tests, sometimes even repeating the same tests, so I am able to get both accurate and reliable test results that reflect what the athlete’s capabilities are and not just a set of numbers that may have been the product of luck or having a bad day. Smoot did this second round of tests 2 days after the first and emailed me the results. In the 30m Smoot hit a 4.24s and a 4.14s. I’m a little skeptical of the second time due to the huge improvement as well as the fact that he was having some issues with the timing system. In the worst case scenario, he still matched his best time from the previous test session which is always a good sign.
