Sprint Legend Michael Johnson on Strength and Conditioning and Mental Focus
Speed endurance, high intensity training, NFL Combine preparation (Rebroadcast)
For track and field aficionados and followers of Olympic sports in general, the legendary sprinter Michael Johnson needs little introduction. But I’ll say a few words anyway as reminders: Michael is still holder of the 400 meter world record and a former holder of the 200 meter record.
He is the only athlete in history to hold world records and win Olympic gold medals in both those events at the same time. Michael’s breakthrough performances were in Atlanta in 1996 but he also struck gold in Barcelona and Sydney in a career at the very top than spanned over a decade.
