In April, I wrote Predicting 4Ã—100 meter Relay Potential.
So with Usain Bolt’s recent 9.76 and 9.72 World Record, you have to wonder what the Jamaican team can run for the 4×100 meter relay.
Imagine with perfect baton exchanges what they can run.
Here is the fantasy line up with Marvin Anderson and Dwight Thomas as alternates:
- Nester Carter 10.11
- Usain Bolt 9.72
- Michael Frater 10.03
- Asafa Powell 9.74
Add the above times, subtract 3.0 and add 0.3 seconds and you get 36.90 seconds!
It makes the current WR of 37.40 (tied) seem pedestrian.
Let the Games begin.
