This study produced a notational analysis of 200m sprint running. Previous notation research has analysed several athletics events but no research could be found on 200m running. The aim of the study was to identify factors that affect performance of athletes. Video footage from the 2004 season, particularly the Athens Olympics, was used for analysis with the 200m divided into two 100m intervals. Male and female athletes were analysed separately, but comparisons between the sexes were also made. Positions, split times, velocities, and stride frequencies and lengths were the variables analysed for both intervals. The data was also collated into two separate sub-groups for analysis; by finishing position and by lane allocations. The results provided evidence to suggest that the first 100m in the 200m race is extremely important to the final outcome and athletes need to be in the top three positions, at the 100m point, to have a chance of winning. Athletes allocated lane 4 during competition produced the best performances, while throughout several of the men’s analysis lanes 1 and 2 are considerably surpassed by other lanes, leading to the suggestion that these lanes are negative to performance. There is a relationship that athletes that produce the faster 0-100m interval times also produce the faster 100-200m intervals.
