Fast keeps getting faster...

World record holder and Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt can run an astonishing 27 miles per hour; that’s a blazing 12 meters a second! Besides winning an Olympic gold medal, Bolt is also the holder of a couple of world records.  His interest is not merely held to the track; he has accomplished something else rarely talked about. He has shattered all scientific data previously held about human speed capacity. His record breaking 100 meters clocked in at an unparalleled 9.56 seconds! Scientists say Bolt owes it all to his height. Standing an impressive 6’5, Usain towers over the competition. His height has even broken the mathematic model used by scientists to measure human potential in the 100 meters. Leaving everyone, including scientists, wondering just how fast can humans run? Could a possible 6’9 or 7 foot runner be even faster than Bolt? Researchers say yes. In fact, those studying the progression of world records say the record should reach around 9.26 seconds, which will most likely be set by a new, taller runner. The only problem? No one like that currently exists in track and field. Currently, Usain Bolt, quite simply put, is in a league of his own.
