It’s not easy to teach most high school kids how to hurdle well.
Or, I should say, I have a hard time developing consistent, aggressive and technically sound hurdlers.
I think the difficulty in teaching it explains why there are usually about 10 times as many 100 meter runners on a team as there are hurdlers.
If you can figure out some fundamentals, you can really do a lot of damage at scoring meets.
With that in mind, here are 3 of my favorite hurdles specific posts from the site, all from USATF Master Coach Tony Veney:
