Geoffrey Mutai 2:03:02 The Fastest Marathon Time on Earth, But Not World Record !

>> April 21, 2011

Yes it was an extraordinary performance! Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya has recorded the fastest marathon time of all time when he crosses the Boston Marathon's finishing line at 2:03:02s on April 18, 2011.

However, it's not a world record because Boston is not included  in the IAAF lists of suitable course for recognition of a record. The time is 57 seconds faster than the official world record of 2:03:59 set by Ethiopia's Haile Gebrselassie at Berlin in 2008.

There was speculation that the runners on the course had been aided by a tailwind. But I believe that the main factors that accelerate the race was the "decrease of elevation" between the start and finish. The race starts at 490 feet in elevation and finishes at 10 feet. Thus, Boston Marathon had a net decline in elevation of 480 feet or 104 metres in which obviously over of the permitted elevation of 42 metres or more correctly one metre in a thousand (1m per km).

Start - Finish Elevation of Boston Marathon
One of the interesting facts about the course of Boston Marathon is that the significant drop in elevation at the first 2 km. Well, the runners would start with a gear two speed (of course in control) and less hard work of acceleration is needed!

Boston Marathon was started in 1897 with 18 participants but now attracts 26,895 'qualified' runners.

The Fastest Football Player of All Time

>> April 15, 2011

Everyone know that Usain Bolt is the fastest human being on earth as he hold the fastest time over 100 metres in 9.58s, or if intelligent people say "the century dash is not based on pure speed it's speed + speed endurance", then that's fine but no one has ever run faster than Bolt at 30m, 50m or 70m distances. Although the U.S sprinter Tyson Gay has beaten him in their last face-to-face meet but that's another story.

Okay in general the word "football"  refers to American Football, and for many countries outside Americas it usually means Soccer, Rugby Union etc.. let's back to question who the heck is the fastest footballer of all time? who would you pick Cristiano Ronaldo? Lionel Messi? Bryan Habana? Toderai Chavhanga? Deion Sanders? Chris Johnson?.... so many rumors out there saying how quick and fast they are but we're still not sure whether those arguments were true, but official timing revealed everything.



Without any doubt "Bullet" Bob Hayes is the fastest footballer of all time. He was a world record holder at 60 yards (5.9s), 100 yards (9.1s) and recorded a 9.91s (w) at 100m on chewed-up cinder track during the SF of the 1964 Olympics, where he later became the Olympic champion. He anchored the USA 4x100m's  quartet to gold medal and recorded a (split) time of 8.6s (FAT 8.84s), which is the fastest time ever recorded at 100m until Asafa Powell's 8.72s (4x100m final) in Beijing. In NFL, he changed the way football was played by introducing world class speed at the wide receiver position for Dallas Cowboys back in 1960's and early 1970's. He died in 2002 at 60.

For living football player, I would pick Trindon Holliday of USA, the 5"5 (1.65m) guy who run the 60m and 100m in 6.54s and 10.00s respectively and won the silver medal at the 2007 USA National Championship (just behind Tyson Gay). He however opted to not compete in the World Athletics championship in Osaka because he would begin the football season with LSU Tigers. He also run a 4.21s in 40y and has a vertical jump's record of 42".

Trindon Holliday has a PB of 10.00s at 100m with 1.65m tall
The other top 6 fastest footballers, with their positions and personal records would be;

> Renaldo Nehemiah (Wide Receiver): A former WR holder at 110mh (12.93s)
> Willie Gault (Wide Receiver): 1983 World champion in 4x100m, 10.10s at 100m
> Jacoby Ford (Wide Receiver): 4.28s at 40y, 6.51s at 60m, 10.01s in 100m
> Jeffery Demps (Running Back): 6.53s at 60m, 10.01s at 100m
> Chris Johnson (Running back): 4.24s at 40y, 10.32 at 100m
> Clifford "C.J" Spiller (Running Back): 6.67s at 60m, 10.22s at 100m

*List is not a ranking.
*40 yards times were taken with NFL standard time trials system, with both reaction time and wind gauge not used.

I don't have any list for Soccer because in my opinion the players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Arjen Robbin, Theo Walcott, Thierry Henry, Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Michael Owen, are not even as fast, as quick, and as strong as most of the NFL players. Even Cristiano Ronaldo may not seem to run below 11.00 (FAT) ? And there is no evidence that players from other Rugby leagues could have done better especially in speed and quickness.
