So my son has always been a mid to low 22 sec 200m guy, all through high school, even posted a 21.9 summer before 10th grade, hand timed at a track camp at UT. This year, his senior year in High School, his best time so far is 23.3. He looks the same, has even taken off a little muscle bulk, he's very muscular, a track coach told him to lose a little of that upper body bulk. Strange thing is, he raced a kid last week that ran at state last year in the low 22s and beat him, they both posted 23.3 range runs. Why are the times slower? He hasn't lost any strength with the weight loss, he was really hoping to post a high 21 in an actual meet this year, he's not even close to that.
