Play the video to learn more about the state-of-the-art tracks available at the AIS with Edwina Bone.

After watching the video, take some time to discuss your thoughts around the following questions:

  • Why might athletes need a training track both indoors and outdoors?
  • In your opinion, which of the available technologies are the most useful to runners?
  • What other exercises could help runners to be faster and stronger? Why?

Activity: Test your reactions! Sprinters have amazingly quick reaction times to ensure they are the first to cross the finish line! Test your own reaction times by holding a sprint race and timing how fast you can be. Try a digital version of this as an online game by searching for ‘reaction time testing’ style games.
