Top Speed?

this may seem like a stupid question but does anyone know what a flying sprint is?

i know track athelets who do them but i just dont know what they are. they’ll call them flying 20’s or flying 40’s.

They are sprints where you accelerate so you are at top speed at the beginning and throughout the required distance. For a flying 20m, you would accelerate through a 20m to 30m fly in to be at full speed for the next 20m.
