Watch: How The USA’s Carlin Isles Makes Himself The Fastest Man In Rugby

USA Rugby has released a video of Carlin Isles in training to show some of the methods he uses to keep himself as one of the fastest players in world rugby.

Isles is known for his electrifying pace that has lit up the sevens circuit since 2012 when the American took up the sport, being a relative latecomer to the sport at the age of 23.

Before he switched over to rugby, Isles made a name for himself in the world of athletics and in particular sprinting. At one point he was officially the 36th fastest sprinter in the United States, which in global terms makes him pretty quick to say the least.

Isles represented his country at the Olympics in Rio earlier this year, in rugby’s first appearance in the world’s biggest sporting event since 1924, although this time in sevens form.

The USA speedster also spent time with Glasgow Warriors in the Pro 12.

Take a look at this video to see some of the gruelling training the American goes through to keep himself one of the fastest players in the sport.
