greyhounds, now they are extraordinary how quickly they hit top speed. even cheetahs can't match it.
forgive my utterly irrelevant post Silly
Report northanlite October 29, 2018 3:16 PM GMT
but while i'm posting irrelevantly i shall continue.........humans are really slow. sprinting is of little use to us.
where we score is distance running. no animal can outlast us, wild dogs & wolves are the closest but even they can't cover the distances.
a huge factor in the evolutionary success of the human race. damn maybe that is why they called it thatSilly

they move 0 metres in first 0.1 seconds or else they are disqualified

bolt's reaction time was usually around 0.15 seconds

he can run 10metres at top speed, in 0.81 seconds

doesnt answer your question though inspired

no animal can outlast us?....not even a horse ?

Report scandanavian_haven October 29, 2018 3:42 PM GMT
on average the 9.58 run was 10.43 meters per second, I don't know how far he ran in the first second officially but the first 10 meters are always the slowers segments of the race.

with reaction time though, the first 10 meters was 2.036 seconds. So 1 second would been around 5 meters idk.

The procedure is not to spear the antelope, such as a kudu, from a distance, but to run it down in the midday heat, for about two to five hours over 25 to 35 km (16 to 22 mi) in temperatures of about 40 to 42 °C (104 to 108 °F). The hunter chases the kudu, which then runs away out of sight. By tracking it down at a fast running pace the hunter catches up with it before it has had enough time to rest in the shade. The animal is repeatedly chased and tracked down until it is too exhausted to continue running. The hunter then kills it at close range with a spear.

The blood building PEDS that are available very cheaply are strongly encouraged by the Athletics officials who are making huge sums from sponsorships on the back of the successes of their athletes only report the occasional fail to 'prove' that they're drug testing correctly.
Like many others Jamaica especially they have to decide who,when and why a particular athlete gets thrown under the bus,plenty documentaries showing the truth behind the 'sport'.
As for our successes we play the TUE system to the hilt and UKAD have huge loopholes surrounding out of competition testing and what can be taken then.
Billy Joe Saunders had been playing the game unfortunately his opponent had Victor Conte on his side who showed everything for what it is and he had to vacate or have a legal battle after failing the VADA testing system.
Radcliffe typifies the TUE exploitation to the hilt,she is an anaemic,asthmatic white woman with the most inefficient running style in history yet she has ran the FASTEST LIKE FOR LIKE MARATHON IN HISTORY like for like being male vs female time beating the times of all the blood doping and EPO cheats and it still hasn't been broken.

Passing drug tests doesn't prove an athlete hasn't done wrong as organisations have NEVER been fit for purpose,Victor Conte and others proved how ridiculous the testing systems are and there's plenty evidence of corruption at the IAAF between top officials in fact it's a great earner for them.
Plus the pass or fail lies with the Federation in question there is no zero tolerance fails have been known to disappear or be allowed to stand,usually a fail is a balls up by the athlete or coach as is any out of competition fails which allows 2 dodged tests to make sure less produce a fail.

The procedure is not to spear the antelope, such as a kudu, from a distance, but to run it down in the midday heat, for about two to five hours over 25 to 35 km (16 to 22 mi) in temperatures of about 40 to 42 °C (104 to 108 °F). The hunter chases the kudu, which then runs away out of sight. By tracking it down at a fast running pace the hunter catches up with it before it has had enough time to rest in the shade. The animal is repeatedly chased and tracked down until it is too exhausted to continue running. The hunter then kills it at close range with a spear.
