    Just saw JRM's post, I missed it first time through.

    So is your estimate a recurring decimal or an irrational number?
    Bolt's corrected time is transcendental, of course.

      This may have been a greater race (Bolt/Powell taken into account together); Beijing was for sure a greater performance by Bolt for reasons stated above.

        I agree with malmo, winning the Olympic Final with a WR is the biggest accomplishment and more impressive. Adjusting times to wind, altitude and conditions is fine, at the end of the day 9.69 is still the WR and will be until someone breaks it. If we always had good, better or even perfect conditions it would be pretty boring.

            Which would make your calculator needless and you can't really aspire to that. :wink:

              The bigger the stage, the greater the race. The Olympics is the big schmenge that made Usain Bolt immortal...not Brussels.

                Watch out for the Bobsled team in 2010.

                    My cousin Vinny and his 4 friends on the other side of the track recorded the race on their cell phones. After downloading the videos and taking screen shots and adjusting for nebulous 'parallax' issues (for me to know and you to find out), we concluded with certainty down to 21 decimal places that Bolts time "wudda been" 9.212546358523568566654, according to the ' if ifs and buts were fudge and nuts' corollary.

                    Anyone who disagrees with me, or dismisses my endless grammar school analogies, is taking all of the fun out of the sport.

                        The entire purpose of the Olympic Games is to crown the worlds fastest human. All other events are afterthoughts, there to make the entire spectacle cost effective.

                              You must be quite accomplished.

                                The taco flew by me at such an amazing speed! Fast enough to make me stop painting my picture of Jerusalem! Inspired to go for a run I turned on youtube to watch Usain Bolt run an amazing race in the rain. Ecstatic, I grabbed 10 rubber plates and glued them to the ceiling. Feeling a little tired from all this action I am now relaxing in a tub of milk listening to 50 cent.
