    Here's a question I'm not sure how to answer. How many steps did Usain Bolt take in Berlin when he set the existing world record for the 100 at 9.58? Research is allowed for this question.

    The scholarly found report here gets pretty detailed and lists the number of strides as 40.92.

    I seem to recall that everyone else was 43+, so that's about a 5m advantage!

    Gatlin has taken less than 43 when in peak form.

    I'm pretty sure I never took more than 100 in peak form.

    By great coincidence, it is 41 steps from my front door to street.

    Here I am thinking that the number of steps only matters when you are running hurdles. Silly me.
