Quick review here for decathlete @shane_aston94 -
Shane overall does a very good job of approaching the board with good #speed. He may benefit from building his #rhythm better into the #takeoff, as it should almost feel like every step gets bigger and #faster all the way to the #takeoff. That being said, Shane is very much on his toes during the #penultimate and plant. This allows him to be very #fast through the final two steps, and may minimize #braking, but makes it very difficult to lower. If he were to #ground his #penultimate slightly flatter, he would be slightly lower into the plant and would achieve more #lift. He may also benefit from being slightly lower into the #takeoff by placing his penultimate step slightly farther in front of his hips. Shane also #over-rotates slightly in #flight. Similar to high jump, long jumpers generate #angularmomentum, thus #somersaulting them forward. By pushing #backwards and toeing into the plant, Shane may be increasing the amount of somersault he generates. To offset this, he may benefit from holding his hang slightly longer, slowing down his #angularspeed by increasing his #momentofinertia, and grounding his takeoff leg more flat to change the summated ground reaction force direction to an angle that is slightly more vertical.
