1."Life is often compared to a marathon, but I think it is more like being a sprinter; long stretches of hard work punctuated by brief moments in which we are given the opportunity to perform at our best".

"They don't give you gold medals for beating somebody. They give you gold medals for beating everybody"

"Good is not enough when perfect is possible"

Ato Boldon
"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."

  • Maurice Greene

    Born: July 23, 1974
    Birthplace: Kansas City, KS
    Residence: Granada Hills, CA
    Nationality: USA
    Height: 5' 9''
    Weight: 175
    Event: Track & Field sprints – 60, 100 and 200 meters
    PRs 100m 9.79 (1999), 200m 19.86 (1997), 60m WR (i) 6.39 (1998, 2001)

    Background:
    Maurice Greene is track & field’s biggest fan. He loves to run, he loves to compete, he loves his fans and he loves to break world records. He has as much enthusiasm for the sport now as he did when he was young. Maurice can often be found at high school, college and professional track meets checking out the competition. He enjoys sharing his passion for track and field and offers tips and advice to those who listen as he hopes to be a coach when his career as a competitor is finished.

    Along with training partner and Olympic silver medallist Ato Boldon, Maurice has adopted a Los Angeles-area group of youngsters whom they mentor. Maurice knows the importance of getting a head start in a competitive sport.

    Greene got his start in the fourth grade when his age group coach pulled some strings to get him into an eraser shuttle race for fifth graders. Greene cruised to several easy wins and finished easily ahead of his older fifth-grade competition, thus planting the need-for-speed seed.

    In high school, Greene nurtured his speed on the track as well as the football field—Greene’s all-time favourite athlete is football legend Walter Payton. In 1993, he won his third straight Kansas high school state meet 100- and 200-meter sprint double.

    Greene hasn’t always known success. In 1996 Greene’s results at the Olympic Trials were disappointing and he failed to make the team. He knew he had the hardware to be the best in the world, but needed to sharpen his skills. And he knew just the place to do it. He moved to Los Angeles to train with renowned sprint coach John Smith and world-class sprinters Jon Drummond and Ato Boldon. Maurice is all about hard work and is willing to put everything he has into one of Smith’s workouts, and then he even digs a little deeper and gives it more. That’s what makes him a champion.

    Greene’s buoyant personality and charming disposition coupled with his earth-shattering performances have won the hearts of people all over the world. Maurice has always appreciated the support of his fans.

    Maurice was the first to ever win both the 100m and 200m at the 1999 World Championships in Seville. He collected his third gold medal of the competition for his efforts on the 4 x 100-meter relay team.

    Maurice believes he can keep running faster!

  • Straight 4m d heart

    "People can't understand why a man runs. They don't see any sport in it, argue that it lacks the sight-thrill of body contact, the colour of rough conflict. Yet the conflict is there, more raw and challenging than any man versus man competition. In track it is man against himself, the cruelest of all opponents. The other runners are not the real enemies. His adversary lies deep within him, in his ability, with brain and heart, to control and master himself and his emotions."

  • Running?? Why??


    Some People ask why we enjoy running?

    Well here is ur answer:

    1. When your standing behind your starting blocks in a competition, with your heart in your mouth & your nerves goin crazy. When the gun goes eveything changes, the rush you get when u take off out of the blocks is an undescribable feeling.

    2. The relaxation fellin you get wen you cross the line, knowin all your hard work & dedication has paid off whether uv won or lost, if you have set out to break a certain time & u achieve it then u can be proud of urself,winnin doesn't last forever, pride does.

    3. U will never forget the people u meet through athletics or the timse youve spent with them, whether this is your own club mates, people u compete against or just other athletes, you'll always remember the craic, the fun, the drinkin sessions, the mischief and one ting all athletes share, the love for the sport.

    100m - 10.19s 200m - 20.21s 400m - 47.02s (very poor) can only really do 100 and 200m, sort of trained my fast twitches so much i physically cant complete any more than 400m without it being somewhat of a joke. i'm 21, about 72kg, 5ft8", 4% bodyfat. training is mainly plyometrics and overruns (running down hill) with some parachute training. gym work 5 times a week. Anyone interested in training to sprint, i'm also a personal trainer as a second job so just ask.
