Gatlin is amazing and he is nowhere near his peak and I can't wait to see how far this kid goes and what he does for the U.S.

this kind of makes me wonder what is the biological limit that a human can run unaided by steriods or wind?????? i have a feeling that in my lifetime(i'm 20) the record is only gonna get to 9.7 or so at some point, well, we just can't run any faster

According to this guy, the limit is 9.48 and will be reached in 500 years.

I think that with all of the science and nutrition research being done today, that 9.76 won't last very long.............

Bit early in the season, but the conditions must have been right. He might go under again in the Golden League meets.

What is the biological limit that a human can run unaided by steriods or wind? About 9.84.
