Day one tips: In the hundred metres, speed is the only necessity. For the long jump, speed is again vital, but the take off angle must also he somewhere between 44-46. When going for the shot putt, make sure that the angle is between 44 and 47 and that there's a lot of force behind the push. In the high jump, jump as close to the bar as possible and then let Daley reach an angle of 90 degrees before
bringing him down to the crash mat. With the
400 metres, it's good rhythm that's required.
Day two tips: Taking off into the 110 metre hurdles, pace yourself so that you take only two steps between the jumps. To do this you're going to need some speed. With the pole vault, try at first to get the pole in between the uprights, then when the height goes up to 4.4m, try to position the pole just a little further back. The ultimate aim in the discus is to get the angle of attack at 45 degrees - do this and you should get 75,90m. In the javelin, use the maximum speed possible and throw the pole at an angle of between 47-49 degrees to get a distance of over 100m. The 1500m requires you to run quite fast for the first 700m, and then to slow down so that you can regain your energy.
