Conclusion

So a 100 metre Sprinter will have to have a good muscular endurance level because they will need to be getting all the blood pumping into there legs as they will need to run as fast as there legs can move. They will need to have some flexibility as they will need to be able to jump up as fast as the can out of the blocks when the gun goes off to start the race. They will need aerobic endurance, as they will us less oxygen when they race begins, as they will be putting everything into the sprint as they can. There body composition will be different to a marathon runner because they will be a bigger size as there muscles will be bigger as they will need to have as much strength and power as they can. ...read more.
