    Splits published for Usain Bolt's WR 100m put him at 90m (about 98.4 yards) in 8.75s.

    OK, I'll bite. How did a 14-year-old thread get resurrected to rehash this stuff?

    When this thread started, Bolt had not yet raced at 100 meters.

    "Mine is no more or less accurate than the others."

    Yes it is. It is less accurate.

    a proportional distance conversion factor is useless in a race like the 100, where the start plays such an important part. Only effective way is look at split over last 10m (rarely known, unfortuantely) and calculate from there.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I was trying to remember what the metre equivalent to 100 yards was, so I Googled it and this thread was the first hit that came up....and here I am.

    While a typical sprinter will be quicker at the 70m point than at 100m, the speed between 100y and 100m will still usually be quicker than the average for the whole race because even sub 10 100m guys take somewhere around 2.9 seconds to cover the first 20m.
