Background: a track star known as the "fastest human" is steadily practising for next year's Olympic games. He is Ivory (correct) Crockett. He is the only man who has run the 100 yard dash in nine seconds flat. But he feels he has found a technique that will enable him to go even faster. Demonstrating it during practice, he says it is useless to put both feet in the starting cups. Instead, he gets away like a rocket by using his left leg for the liftoff push while swinging his right leg forward for the second stride. crockett is 24 years old, and fast.
