Hi Riaan, 

Try the high knee drills, they both encourage lifting the knees high which should increase stride length once sprinting. Here is the direct link High knee 2.

Also have a look at rapid acceleration drill and the ladder drill which both aim to improve speed and acceleration. Here are the links to both Rapid acceleration drill
and Ladder drill.

All the best to your future Olympian!
