Flip Flop Flying


with 5 comments

As I’ve done before when one of the really fast fellas beats the 100 metres world record, I’ve edited an mp3 to give it some context. This is how much of a Beatles song you can listen to in the time it takes Usain Bolt to run 100 metres. And, if you’re a runner, maybe you could put it on your mp3 player and use it to practice your sprints.

Usain Bolt, 16 August 2009: 9.58s.

Usain Bolt, 16 August 2008: 9.69s.
Asafa Powell, 9 September 2007: 9.74s.
Asafa Powell, 14 June 2005: 9.77s.

Update: the clever folks at Deadspin.com have synced this music to the sprinting here.
