When it comes to running, the name of Usain Bolt comes first. The world knows him as a champion, but the secret behind that is hardly known. So, let’s shed light on why he is 8 times Olympic gold medalist. Let’s shed light on his body composition, in altitude of the track and the air temperature, he was found drag coefficient – which is a measure of the drag per unit area of mass that is actually less aerodynamic than that of an average man.
Usain bolt has an outstanding ability to run. A Jorge Hernandez of the National Autonomous University of Mexico said that he can run faster than an aerodynamic human can be. The amount of work Bolt developed in 2009, the amount observes by drag, was truly extraordinary.
The researcher says that it is hard to break bolt records even by hundredths of a second, as the runners must run very powerfully against a tremendous force which should be successive increases with each bit of additional speed.
“This is because of the ‘physical barrier’ imposed by environmental conditions on Earth. Of course, if Bolt runs on a planet with having a less dense atmosphere, he would be able to achieve many awesome records than he ever achieved.
Though Bolt is known to be a slow starter, he amazingly increases his speed with the fraction of time. Even he could run faster due to his extraordinary large stride length. This is all because of he has fast-twitch muscle fibers that can respond quickly, along with his vast stride gives him an extraordinary running.”
