nice dip though
but being good at 12 doesn't mean he'll keep it up. I reckon the person who came second and this new Bolt's team mates were both shite which doesn't help our perception of things.
'It is hard to gauge world record times for that age group, but Gallaugher's time is faster than any recorded in Australia or the United States.'
i wondered how the kid in front could have got so far ahead in the first 20m...
This kid's PB for the 100m is 11.72 according to that article. My PB for the 100m was 11.8 when I was 15. Despite being 12, that kid looks about as physically developed as I was as a 15 year old, maybe even more so, and he clearly trains properly.
Cool video, looks very impressive, but means absolutely nothing. I'm pretty sure I ran against kids that fast when I was 12 or 13, and these kids didn't turn out to be Usain Bolt or even Mark Lewis-Francis.
and came 6th in the county championships in year 10. The kid who won ran it in about 11.2 as a 15 year old, he was insane.
See, this article has made you think that is freakishly fast. It isn't. Even fat 28 year old dan_thw could probably still run the 100m in about 12.5 seconds as a conservative estimate.
at school you only do about 80m anyway!
You are right that the egg and spoon race is only 80m, but they let me do the proper 100m race.
Get in behind a bit more on Sunday then can you?
now i'm not.
also, this kid needs a better name if he's going to be the next UB
I was decent and went to a few county meets and I think I was doing 12.5 at that point,
To put it in context you have to go back to the 1800's to have anything as slow as 11.8 winning an olympic final.
I mean - you get burned off like that, just give it up
