Wow.. :)

Saw Gatlin's Olympics performance on TV.. Very impressive. Depending on place he runs, its possible to go under 9.7 also..

Hurray for ya, Justin !!

I'll have to consider this.

Under 9.7...incredibly, insanely difficult. Shaving off a millisecond itself is immensely hard!!

Its a short tamil novel about an indian girl, who wants to become the fastest runner.. her goal is to do the 100 m under 10 seconds.. Very well written - describing the training programs, difficulties (especially for indian women) and so on..

Nice book by Sujatha.

Yeah, that's why white people go to the beach to get tanned. Once they become darker, they get more athletic.

Apparently the Russians studied the physical characteristics of many of the 100m winners and selected Valery Borzov to be the most suited to win the short sprint and 'built' him up and succeeded in 1972.

From an article on the subject from the internet..
"The theory has it that the blacks possess fast-twitch fibres in their muscles that give them speed,'' says Dr Teh Kong Chuan, director of the Singapore Sports Council's Sports Medicine and Sports Science Division.
No doubt, numerous factors -- genetic, psychological, cultural and financial -- go into the making of a super sprinter, but the right genes may be the most critical.
The fibres within most human skeletal muscles are close to evenly divided between fast-twitch fibres, which contract very rapidly, and slow-twitch fibres, which don't contract as quickly but generate energy much more efficiently.
Super sprinters, therefore, have an unusual abundance of fast-twitch fibres which give them explosive power, while the legs of marathon runners might contain up to 90 per cent slow-twitch fibres that give them endurance for longer aerobic activities.

Amazing...!
