Congratulations to Pike Central’s junior sprinter Jahn Riley for becoming Indiana’s State Champion in the 400M Dash at a time of 47.53 & placing Runner-Up in the 200M final at 21.31
Jahn accumulated the highest number of team points out of all of the state competitors which helped his team place 2nd in overall standings.
Jahn will be competing in the New Balance Nationals this summer with #THATOLIFE running club. Did you miss the state meet? Well you can watch the full coverage at the following link below.
Athletic Analysis: Jahn’s mental game is beginning to match his talent. We have only spent a short amount of time working together. During this time, running technique was highly emphasized at every session. Jahn’s starts are aligned properly some of the time. His start is slow at times due to reaction to the gun. Jahn still needs to work on core strength to improve his running posture. He has tremendous stride frequency, but it is inconsistent. From the beginning, Jahn faced difficulty in completing a workout mostly due to his emotional state of mind. Too many questions and not enough production. He persevered and in return began to mark improvements in his performances.
Jahn has outstanding potential. I highly recommend gun starts, technique training and weight training designed specifically for him. Jahn could potentially run sub 21.0 outdoors in the 200 meter dash during his high school career.
