I overheard this….


I was at the NYU FastTrack Invitational on Friday coaching a post-grad athlete and one of my collegiate multi-eventers in the men’s long jump when I overheard a coach say this (verbatim) to her female long jumper (which was going on concurrently in an adjacent pit) upon being asked how to keep her feet up longer before landing:

It’s just a matter of waiting a little bit for the landing.
