Bolt gives Aussies sprinting tips ahead of Ashes

first_imgTHE Australia cricket team is picking up advice ahead of the Ashes series against England in Australia later this week from an unlikely source, double sprint world record holder Usain Bolt.The 31-year-old sprinter, who retired from the sport this summer is an avid fan of cricket and even played as a fast bowler before taking up track and field.Even so, the sprinter will thankfully be sticking to his area of expertise running as he advises the batsmen on how to get maximum speed running between the wickets.According to the world’s fastest man, what it comes down to is explosiveness.“It’s all about explosiveness, and that’s one thing I’ve noticed with cricket – they don’t really have a lot of explosiveness when they’re running,” Bolt told the Herald Sun.“They seem to always take off at a slow rate. Getting that right will definitely help people.”The nine-time Olympic gold medalist also revealed plans in conjunction with major sponsors Gatorade for the presentation of the Gatorade Fastest Run trophy this summer.The award will be presented to the Australian cricketer who can record the fastest speed between the wickets throughout the summer of cricket, including Twenty20 matches.“We’re trying to make awareness more of running (as an asset in cricket) and we’re developing the Bolt Rate which is the quickest person through the wicket,” the retired sprinter said.“I’m happy about that, because we’re going to see who is the fastest between the wickets.“Nobody can assume – now we’ll actually know who’s the fastest.”(Sportsmax.com)last_img read more
