Master the 400m with Katharine Merry
Around the Academy:

Check out Katharine Merry's ace 400m video masterclass

I'm Katharine Merry and run the 400m.

Watch my masterclass

If you're having trouble downloading the video, why not check out our slideshow

I'm going to show you how to run the perfect 400m. But be warned, it's not going to be easy!

The race is a long sprint, so it's essential to get off to a flying start and you have to maintain your speed with a smooth running rhythm.

And the final part of the race will really hurt!

You need mental strength, courage and determination but if you follow my advice, hopefully it'll be a bit easier!
