Tyson Gay:

Tyson Gay is able to blow up a balloon in two breaths. This is the same amount of air he consumes during his entire 100m race.

Allyson Felix:

Although she is only 5’6″ tall, Allyson actually has a longer stride than world champion high jumper Blanca Vlasic jumps!

Jeremy Wariner:

American 400m gold medalist Jeremy Wariner has unique spikes that mimic the way his feet hit the ground when going around the turns of the track. Check out how the innovation with his spikes has allowed him to run turns more naturally.
