  • trivia question, very trivial

    what top speed did Carl Lewis and Ben Johnson approach in the 100 meter final in the '92 Olympics, and how many seconds did it take them to cover 10 meters at top speed?

    Re: trivia question, very trivial

    We've had this discussion before, but the fastest reputable 10m split I've ever hear of is Lewis's 0.83 sec, which equates, as I recall, to just under 30 miles per hour.

        .83 was 80-90m for Lewis, 40-50m for Johnson in that race. Tells you something.. (no, not about doping.. just different builds. Or maybe Carl's will to win)

          I have seen the splits of Johnsons finger in the air 9.79s and he hit 40m at 4.63s but right now I can't remember or find the splits. should be about 0.8s for 10m. Thats 25 MPH. Some real running buff should have everything on this.

            At the 1988 Seoul OG Men's 100m final, Ben Johnson & Carl Lewis both achieved the same peak speed of 12.05m/s (12.048m/s rounded-up)or 26.95mph within the same 10m section of 50-60m.
            10m Split times of both athletes come from the "Scientific Research Project at the Games of the XXIVth Olympiad - Seoul 1988'', Bruggemann, G. and Glad, B. (eds), IAAF and Charles University, Prague (1988)".

              Flo-Jo achieved a 10m Split time of 0.91w
              aided by the +3.0m/s following wind within the 1988 Soeul OG Women's 100m final.
              She also achieved a 0.91s 10m split within the 1988 Soeul OG Women's 100m Quarter-final 3 (aided with +1.0m/s following wind).
              These split times come from the "Scientific Research Project at the Games of the XXIVth Olympiad - Seoul 1988'', Bruggemann, G. and Glad, B. (eds), IAAF and Charles University, Prague (1988)".

              Although for her 10.49s 'world record' form my Video-Tape Analysis I have recorded a 10m Split time of 0.89s, which represents a Peak Speed of
              11.24m/s (11.235m/s rounded-up)or 25.14mph.
