How fast could Usain Bolt run a 40? Looking at the splits from his world record 100 meter dash, I calculate a time of about 4.25. (And yes, I am subtracting reaction time).

This would be slightly worse than the best time ever recorded which was 4.22 by John Ross.

Usain would have pulled away from Ross after 40 yards though.

If you take bolt's start, plus his three fastest, it would be 4.11

Why would you do that, though? It takes more than 10 meters to reach full speed.

Because of the way bolt run's 100 meter dashes, his maximum speed is usually between 70-90 meters, if he ran 40 yards, he would probably speed up quicker.

Also, Christian Coleman ran a time of 4.12 according to Wikipedia, so I'm convinced Bolt could do it faster.

And Bolt ran a 4.22 a year after he retired.

How about you stop acting like you know anything about running and look at the facts. Usain Bolt, after retirement, went and ran a 4.22 40-yard dash casually in tennis shoes.

I hate when people think that these NFL players are actually comparable to legit T&F athletes. Please remove your pinned comment. (Yes, he may have been wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt, but might I reiterate that he ran that after having been in retirement for quite some time)

That's not a very nice attitude, cathlete.

No, Usain Bolt did not run a 4.22 in sweatpants. More like 4.6.

A let's run blogger, classic. Even more classic is how he's timing Bolt head on rather than from the side. His timing is just as reliable as the NFL's.

Either way, my point still stands that some NFL guys certainly don't have more speed than Usain Bolt. It's downright insulting to T&F. T&F athletes sacrifice just as much to be successful as NFL players, yet their salaries don't reflect it whatsoever.

Ok yes very convincing Qm, the 4.22 is probably false, but Christian Coleman ran a 4.12, and his record is 9.76. If Usain Bolt's record is a 9.58, then I think he might've been able to run a 4.08 or 4.07

Either Way, the question says sub 4 second, which no one can do today.

You run 40 yards as fast as you can. In the US, it is one of the things that moves people up in the NFL draft because speed apparently makes up for other flaws. Teams think if you can run 40 yards faster than the guy covering you, it doesn't matter too much if you're catching abilities are subpar, because you'll be so wide open. This does ignore that rarely people run 40 yards without getting touched in an actual NFL game.

Looking at splits from Justin Gatlin's record, he ran the first 10 meters in 1.84 secs, something which bolt is undoubtedly capable of. Bolt usually runs the first 10-20 meters slower to conserve energy for the 60-100 meters section, meaning that in a 40 yd dash, he would likely run faster in the first 10 yards. Let's just stay safe and give him a 1.75 in the first two meters, and then take the rest of the splits. Giving him 2.75 more, so a 4.50 40 meter dash, which is a 4.12 40 yd dash. Subtract Wind, and you'd be in between 4.15-4.20, which seems reasonable to me. I think the other factors cancel themselves out, such as grass and no sprrings.

I was thinking it might be fun to have a pool with friends where we each "buy" Scorigamis, for 10 bucks each. If your score happens before any of the others you get to keep the winnings.

Only missed the foul ball death question, over-thought it (thought it had happened only at MiLB game). MLB sure does a good job of keeping this hush. I'm an avid baseball fan and don't remember hearing a thing about the 2018 death.

One fan might have thought she'd last forever. In 1957 at Philadelphia, Richie Ashburn hit a foul ball that hit a lady in the face. As she was being carried out on a stretcher, Ashburn hit another foul ball striking the lady again.

After the game, Ashburn visited her in the hospital and they remained lifelong friends. She got season tickets and one of her grandsons became a Phillies batboy.

The grandsons asked Grandma if she wouldn't mind attending an Eagles game and getting hit in the nose with a football.

MLB didn't do anything to keep it "hush." I remember hearing about it in the news, as well as the push for and against putting up more safety netting at stadiums (ultimately required by Commissioner Mansfred).

Martin Brodeur got credit for three goals, but he only really shot one. The others bounced off him and then by happenstance ended up in the net without any of Brodeur's teammates touching it, so Brodeur got credit.

Ron Necciai, a minor league pitcher with the Bristol Twins of the Appalachian League, once struck out 27 batters in a 7-0 no-hitter. He struck out four batters in one inning, one of them reaching first on a third-strike passed ball. Two batters put the ball in play, one being retired and the other reaching on an error.

No major league pitcher has come close to 27 strikeouts in a game. Necciai was rushed to the majors in 1952 by the pitching-poor Pirates, was hit hard and often, and finished his only major league season with a 1-6 record.
