a world record

Met a world record holder yesterday. Kevin Young holds the world record in the 400m hurdles, which he set in Barcelona in 1992. He ran the 400 in 46.78 seconds, and he did so by developing a technique that gave him a 9-foot (!) stride.

His company (Phewsioneering) was in town for the past few days putting on some training clinics in conjunction with Adrenaline Sports USA, and I was assigned by a local publication to document some of the happenings. Paul from Adrenaline Sports was very helpful, and Kevin and his partner Ed Lovelace from Phewsioneering were very accommodating for the photographer that kept interrupting their training session for “just one more” shot. But I think the people that actually had to run and work out in the 95-degree heat appreciated the extra couple minutes of rest…
