The cup's half full for confident Boden

Canberra Times
25 Jan, 2012

She was modelling a biomechanically-designed bra at the Australian Institute of Sport yesterday, but it's a revamped stride pattern that Canberra's Lauren Boden hopes will take her all the way to the London Olympics.

The sports garment unveiled yesterday is the latest development in a 10-year relationship between Berlei and the AIS biomechanics department. It may well be designed using a complex three-dimensional Vicon Motion Analysis System, but the simple aim is comfort.

And coming off her recent victory over rival Jana Pittman, Boden said she was also getting comfortable with a new hurdling style that she says can earn her an Olympic qualifying time.

Boden ran 56.14secs for the 400m hurdles in Newcastle on the weekend, taking half a second off her opening season run.

The Olympic A-qualifying time is 55.5sec.

''I tried a new stride pattern in Newcastle which worked so it is nice that my coach, Matt Beckenham and myself have been able to work out a different stride pattern for the different conditions,'' Boden said.

''Fortunately it worked well as my time was quicker than my first [run of the season]. If I can keep going with that this season I will be heading to London.

''I am hoping that with the great flat speed I have going at the moment and some extra fitness I will be definitely be able to get that [Olympic qualifying] time soon.''

Boden intends to consolidate with some training in Canberra before consecutive meets at Hobart, Perth and Sydney beginning February 4.
