World Champion Techniques Exclusive On FloTrack



One thing that often gets overlooked on our website is technique. We all aren’t born like Ashton Eaton or Melissa Bishop. But you can train like them.

Traveling to a running camp or getting 1-on-1 help from professionals can be time consuming and expensive. That’s where we come in. We have over 850 training and technique videos from professional athletes and coaches alike.

Take it from Julius Yego aka Mr. Youtube, sometimes to win Gold all you need to do is sit down in front of a computer.

Over 75 athletes may sound like a lot. You may not know where to begin?



Maybe start with “The World’s Greatest Athlete” and 2015 World Champion Ashton Eaton. Not a bad place to start. He breaks down each event and his overall approach to competing in 10 events over a two day span.

ASHTON EATON: TECHNIQUES

Perhaps you are looking more specifically to be a jumper. Perhaps a long jumper. Why would you want to learn from anybody other than the man who jumped the 2nd farthest all-time in the triple jump? Learn from Christian Taylor, your 2015 World Champion.

If middle distance is your thing - we’ve got you covered. Melissa Bishop set the new Canadian Record in the 800m and to back it up, decided to get herself a silver medal the next race. Watch Melissa teach you how to dictate the pace to navigate rounds.

0:00 / 0:00

Despite falling short of his goal of breaking Hicham El Guerrouj’s 3:48.45 by an excruciating 0.01 seconds, Yomif Kejelcha’s mile on Saturday completely lived up to the pre-race hype. Not only did he run the fastest time indoors in 22 years, but his inconsistent splits underscored a performance that could have been faster with smoother pacing. And at just 21-years-old, Kejelcha’s near-miss at the Armory felt much more like a triumph than a failure.
