Serious question..what if its really windy and the wind is favorable to the runners..wouldnt that wind push runners to run even faster than their max time? In moderate winds, usain bolt could prob run 9 sec flat.

It is “unlikely” we will see someone run 100m in 9.0 seconds in our lifetime without significant changes to the rules (track/gear/drugs etc). To define what is possible and impossible in regards to humans running is short sighted in my opinion.

Bill Gates Breaks Down Why It's Almost Impossible to Run 100 Meters 3 months ago   09:41

Bill Gates reflects on six important moments from his life and career, from teaching students to program in high school to his relationships with Melinda Gates, Warren Buffett, and Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, who passed away on October 15.

This video was recorded on August 31, prior to Mr. Allen’s passing, and had previously been scheduled for release this week. Bill Gates and WIRED dedicate this video to him.

Bill Gates released the following statement about his friend and colleague on October 15:

“I am heartbroken by the passing of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Paul Allen. From our early days together at Lakeside School, through our partnership in the creation of Microsoft, to some of our joint philanthropic projects over the years, Paul was a true partner and dear friend. Personal computing would not have existed without him.


“But Paul wasn’t content with starting one company. He channeled his intellect and compassion into a second act focused on improving people’s lives and strengthening communities in Seattle and around the world. He was fond of saying, ‘If it has the potential to do good, then we should do it.’ That’s the kind of person he was.

“Paul loved life and those around him, and we all cherished him in return. He deserved much more time, but his contributions to the world of technology and philanthropy will live on for generations to come. I will miss him tremendously.”

--Bill Gates, Co-Founder of Microsoft and Co-Chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
