|Subject: ||RE: Rupp 10.9 and Farah 11.3 for the 100m|
I'm talking from a block start.
It would put both of them between about 12.5 and 13.0 from the blocks, yes...maybe closer to 12.5 than 13.0
Rupp MIGHT have slightly more top speed than Farah, but I would be willing to bet that Farah has better acceleration than Rupp.
Why don't some of you distance guys try a 100m FAT from blocks, while seriously training distance, and tell me what you run.
And then remember that Rupp and Farah are truly elite distance runners, highly optimized to run distance, and therefore highly NOT optimized to sprint from the blocks.
