New racers, this thread illustrates why the Flying 200M isn't as simple as it seams.

Even in a local sprint tournament, the fastest qualifier and the last-est qualifier can be separated by only 1 second. Look at a stopwatch and see how quickly 1 second passes.

Strength and power aside, there is an element of choreography involved in order to simply do well, much less your very best.

What's more is that the Flying 200 simply prints you a ticket to get into the big dance. If you make it, you still have to dance your ass off to advance
