              You dont need 14 minutes to answer. Since 1968 only 115 humans broke the 10 second barrier (26 were doped). 115 out of 7.8 billion + the ones that died is a very very small percentage. You dont need sports science, you just need to look at this statistic and change the title to 10 seconds.

                    That's why I was wondering why I couldn't run faster and cross below 9m/s.

                                I feel like its possible to run 100m in 9 seconds, whenever I take out my trash at my apartment complex during midnight.

                                    I ran 100 m in 9 seconds flat. However everyone said the timekeeper had made some mistake.

                                      If Mr Bolt made babies with the perfect match, then it will be possible to run 9 seconds.

                                                  I believe bolt could do it if he didn't slow down at the end

                                                      It was impossible to run a marathon under 2 years at the beginning of last year. So... let's go humanity!

                                                        As a non-American, its mildly inconvenient to have to pause the video every time miles are mentioned and do the conversion.
