  • How many strides for 100m?

    I was wondering with the plethora of athletics nouse out there if any one actually knew,

    I got told by my school maths teacher several years ago that it was 20-30 for the really good guys.

    I couldn't beleive it..
    Was he even close.

      For most world class male sprinters, the count is between 44-47 strides per 100m (roughly 4.5 strides per second).

        In the study carried out at the Seoul OG - the only authentic figures that I have - the number of strides made by the first four finishers were given as :-

        Johnson 46.6
        Lewis 43.6
        Christie 43.8
        Smith 43.9

        Additionally, the fastest 10m sector for each was given as:-
        Johnson 50m to 60m .83 secs
        Lewis 50m to 60m .83 secs
        Christie 50m to 60m .84secs
        Smith 50m to 60m .85 secs
