Marvin Bracy - High School National Record 6.08 55 Meters - Jimm Jan 30, 2012

Marvin Bracy sets a new high school national record with a 6.08 second 55 meter run at the Jimmy Carnes indoor track and field meet held at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center in Gainesville, FL. The meet was hosted by University of Florida and held on 01-29-2012.At first I thought he had false started while I was filming this and just wasn't called on it with the jump he got on the field. After replaying my video at the meet in slow mo and frame by frame it can clearly be seen that Bracy begins to move the 3rd frame after the puff of smoke from the gun. Since my camera shoots at 30 frames a second, I would estimate around a .1 reaction(or anticipation) to the gun.

Marvin Bracy - 6.08 55 Meters with Slo Mo Jan 31, 2012

Marvin Bracy sets a new high school national record with a 6.08 second 55 meter run at the Jimmy Carnes indoor track and field meet held at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center in Gainesville, FL. The meet was hosted by University of Florida and held on 01-29-2012.At first I thought he had false started while I was filming this and just wasn't called on it with the jump he got on the field. After replaying my video at the meet in slow mo and frame by frame it can clearly be seen that Bracy begins to move the 3rd frame after the puff of smoke from the gun. Since my camera shoots at 30 frames a second, I would estimate around a .1 reaction(or anticipation) to the gun.Upon further examination of the video in my editor I can see that the gun sound hit the camera mic about 5.5 frames after the first flash of the gun, which means that I was sitting about 63 meters away from the gun. Sorry if the video is a little shaky. I hand held the camera.This is my second attempt to upload this video. The first had audio that was not in sync. This version not only has the correct synced up audio, but I also created a full run slow mo where you can clearly see the puff of smoke and then Marvin begin to move afterward.
