    Goodwin blows through the 40 Yards of Gold bracket, pockets a cool $1 million after defeating Donte Jackson in the final.

    I notice that there's no time given, nor timing methodology.

    Not that it matters. The goal was to win.

    A shame John Ross wasn't there.

    $1M will be spent soon enough, bragging rights to the fastest time ever (not that it probably was) is priceless.

    The whole 40y discussion is always predicated on times. The least they could have done is time the dang thing. I'm guessing they didn't because it was probably 4.3x, and then every Tom, Dick and Harry coulda said he woulda beat them cuz 'one day my coach timed me in 4.1' !

    Since it's a race as opposed to the time trials the have at the Combine, there's no practical way to time it and get an apples-to-apples comparison. If the starter starts the clock like they do in track meets, the fastest guys would probably run 4.4 or 4.5.

    ?
    It's either FAT or SAT (like the combine, their movement starts the clock and an electric beam stops it), so whichever it is, we CAN compare to other times.

    Bolt went by 40y in 4.35 +.02 in his WR race according to the 10m 'splits' taken. He had a .15 RT, that a worst-case scenario of 4.20 SAT (4.0h).
