Flying 30 Meter Sprint

Sprint or speed tests can be performed over varying distances, depending on the factors being tested and the relevance to the sport. This is the description of the 30 meter sprint test with a flying start. This is different from the 30m sprint test, which is measured from the blocks or from a standing start. With a 30m running start, this test can measure maximum running speed. You can also perform this test as part of a 60m sprint test, using split times to measure the flying 30m time. This test is commonly used by track and field coaches as part of speed training.
