 Why Usain Bolt is NOT the fastest person on Earth: Scientist argues the 100 metres doesn’t always produce the quickest performance

  • Wind improves athletes’ performances only in short sprinting events
  • Using a wind machine, Justin Gatlin beat Usain Bolt’s record for 100m
  • For athletes running long distances, however, wind is a hindrance

Usain Bolt this week retained his title as the fastest man on Earth when he won the Olympic gold medal for the 100 metres sprint for the third year in a row.

But, Justin Gatlin, the US athlete who came second behind Bolt, once smashed this world record with the help of a wind machine.

Dr Christian Yates, a lecturer in Mathematical Biology at the University of Bath explains the maths behind the effects of wind and other adverse weather in running in an article for The Conversation

Who is the fastest man on Earth? Usain Bolt, right? Wrong. The unpopular answer is, in fact, Justin Gatlin.

In 2011, he ran the 100 metres (328 feet) in 9.45 seconds, the fastest time a human has ever run that distance, smashing Usain Bolt’s best time by a massive 0.13 seconds.

At the time, the controversial US athlete – twice banned from competing for drug-related offences – was being pushed along the track by a huge 20 metre-per-second tail wind.
