You can but your time would actually be slower than if you just sprint through. The best way is to lean as you break the finish line.

Why does a 100 meter sprinter need flexibility?

Sprinters use muscular strength/ power to get a good powerful and strong start from the starting blocks and also to sprint as hard as they can as usually sprinters cover a relatively short distance (100/200m). sprinting is also an anaerobic activity, if aerobic (such as marathon running) then muscular ENDURANCE would be required instead of muscular STRENGTH. However, when marathon running anaerobic respiration is needed as a final sprint towards the finish line.
