Britain's top sprinters give their top tips to the Academy

Do you know how long it takes to become the coolest athlete on the planet?

It takes less than 10 seconds!

That's as long as you're one of the world's best sprinters. And they're all set for a showdown at the World Champs in Paris.

Okay, there's a huge amount of work that goes into producing the explosive momentum that takes the world's fastest from the blocks to the finish line.

But there's no denying that in full flow, top sprinters like Dwain Chambers and Mark Lewis-Francis look cooler than the Arctic pole.

And four of Britain's quickest are in a rush to give you their advice.

See how they run:

And maybe one day it'll be YOU crouching on the blocks, waiting for the bang of the gun.

And then storming down the track to grab glory and your medal in front of your adoring fans.

Get dreaming now!
