Now hang on! In that case, it would only be a fair race if we also give Feliks several million dollars in clothing deals.This begs the questions of what would happen if we DID allow Mr. Bolt to lube his shoes?
Not necessarily. If you don't lube the sole, but do lube the other outside surfaces, then it's possible that he could reduce his drag coefficient while running. If you lube the inside of the shoe as well, then who KNOWS what sort of magic may happen.wouldnt that cause him to slip? or atleast have less traction
Michael, that's a very valid point, and I must confess that I had not considered it before you mentioned it :fp So, assuming Usain Bolt IS allowed to lube his shoes, AND Feliks gets several million dollars in clothing deals, I can't imagine how incredible watching that race would be. I hate to use the word, for fear that it is over used sometimes, but I truly have to paraphrase Hubi here and say that it might even be "aepic"Now hang on! In that case, it would only be a fair race if we also give Feliks several million dollars in clothing deals.
I didn't think of something like that, but yes that could be beneficial.Not necessarily. If you don't lube the sole, but do lube the other outside surfaces, then it's possible that he could reduce his drag coefficient while running. If you lube the inside of the shoe as well, then who KNOWS what sort of magic may happen.
I heard Usain has a sub-9 average of 12 during practice, he just sucks in compUsain has yet to record a time that's below 9 seconds (although who knows what he does in practice, I just highly doubt it) While faz has too many sub-9s to count let alone sub-8, 7, and 6 second solves. I don't care what you're lubing on Usain Bolt. I'd bet my money on faz.
I don't think 26 is considered "over the hill" for a sprint runner, though. Just looking at the ages of the top 10 100m runners when they set the records: 22, 24x3, 25x2, 27x2, 28, 31. I'd say it's pretty likely that Usain will still be setting records in two years, unless he severely injures himself or randomly decides to leave the sport (and why would he?).2 years means Usains body ages. He was born in 1986 (I am to lazy to do math/check birthday) but that means he is like 24. Being 26 doesn't mean he will be faster.
