Usain Bolt and the 40 Yard Dash.

My son reported to me today that Usain Bolt could run the 40 yard dash in about 4 seconds and some change. I read that his recent 400-meter clocked in at about 23 miles per hour.

On my bicycle I do about 18 mph on a flat service and at a steady pace. Usain Bolt could beat me at a 400 meter race if he started at a stand still running and I started at a roll on my bicycle.

Can he catch a football?

I was talking with Dominic about Usain the other day and was running the numbers also. It almost seems impossible. I thought so much about it, I had to stop, because it was like a system overload.
