0.25 secs = how many metres?

If someone is 0.25 sec faster than you over 100m, how many metres will he be ahead at the end of the race?

It depends on the speed of the athletes in the race. At the end of an elite race (10.0 athletes) the difference would be almost 3 meters, however at the end of a junior high girls race it might only be 1.5 meters or less. For your average 11.0 second guy though, .25 equals about 2.5 meters at the end of the race.


damn makes me think if I raced myself from 4months ago, I’d be a whole lot of metres infront! :slight_smile:
