How (not) To Pass a Sprint Baton

Apparently, the 4x100M Relay is as hard to perform as it is to photograph.  This series is from the olympic development 4x100M at Penn Relays this year.  Just so happens that the team I keyed on, had major issues in the first transition.  You'd think the pros would be the ones to get it right.  Hmmm, not necessarily.  Everything looks good on the setup.


But things soon go awry when the first attempt fails.


And then a serious overshoot complicates further attempts.


A little dancing in the lane ensues while they try to get the baton passed.


And finally, the passer just meekly hands it over.  Classic.


See the whole series here.
