Can humans run faster than 9 seconds? New research says yes!

Can human run faster than 9 seconds?
We all know Usain Bolt as the fastest runner in history, with 9.58 seconds in 100 meters and 19.19 seconds in 200 meters. But what about humans? Can we run faster than 9 seconds? Well, the short answer to that question is yes!

How fast can Usain Bolt run?

Usain Bolt is an Olympic sprinter from Jamaica who, in 2009, broke both the 100-meter and 200-meter world records. His incredible feats have cemented his place as one of the greatest track athletes of all time. But even so, can anyone break a sub-9 second sprint for 100 meters or sub-19 second for 200 meters? Scientists think so. 

How much fast human can run?

Is there a limit to how fast we can run?

Running Science


For decades, scientists have agreed that it’s unlikely that anyone could ever break a nine-second barrier in a 100-meter dash. Now new research suggests they might be wrong—but not for physical reasons. Instead, researchers from Kansas State University (KSU) say that psychological factors are what limits human performance. If their predictions are correct, it may be possible to break a nine-second time in just a few years.

The Cheetah is Fastest Animal on Earth

The cheetah is capable of running at a top speed of 70 mph, which is more than two times faster than Usain Bolt’s fastest 100-meter sprint. Cheetahs live in Africa and Asia and there are only about 12,000 to 20,000 of them left. Researchers want to know if humans can run as fast as cheetahs by comparing their sprinting techniques. Recently scientists discovered that cheetahs exert an enormous amount of force through their front legs during sprints—they push off like sprinters but much more forcefully; This is how they accelerate so quickly and reach such high speeds (called high terminal velocity or HTV). They also discovered that cats use their tails as counterbalances when they are running full tilt.

Do Humans Have a Limit to Speed?

In 2009, Usain Bolt broke a world record by running 100 meters in just under 9.5 seconds. According to a new study from University of Wyoming researchers, if Bolt was running on electricity instead of human muscle, he could run as fast as 7.7 miles per hour—fast enough to sprint across a football field in just 2.6 seconds—and still be able to accelerate and maintain that speed for up to four minutes. What’s more, they say he could do it again and again, every 90 seconds or so. The findings were published in Nature Communications on Jan.

The right speed for us

Based on running science, our bodies function best when we run at speeds between 5 and 8 minutes per mile, with most of us feeling more comfortable in that range. In other words, if you can run a 10-minute mile comfortably, you’re likely to be working out just below your ideal speed.

Human can run faster

That doesn’t mean you have to stay within those boundaries forever — once you’ve built up your endurance by running regularly at a lower speed, adding some harder intervals and hill work will help improve your muscle tone while also increasing your efficiency. But if you’re new to running or returning after a long break from training, it may be best to ease into more intense workouts slowly and build up gradually over time.
