in a half marathon
what about you?
If it were run tomorrow, or does he get time to train?
i'd give him a week to train. maybe.
I've often wondered what my Bolt-Equivalent distance might be. Pretty sure I'd have him over HM but what about 5k? I've got no idea what his endurance is like.
At what distance would Mo Farah and Usain Bolt meet?? Who'd do better in the high jump? Eh? Eh??
I'm off for a jog. Answers on a postcard / fag packet, etc...
Read the article Usain over 10K. Would be fun to reel him in. Carried Olympic Torch on same day as Darren Campbell, who smiled when asked if being a sprinter, he could manage 300m
I just looked at his world record, and Im only 5 seconds off his pace!
i don't think it would take long for mo to catch usain. his kick isn't too shabby. 800 metres tops.
a lot would depend on usain not losing interest and disappearing off to pose/eat chicken/chat up girls
I understand his HM PB is 84 minutes. Can you beat that?
peter - yes! (just) (just)

What would be his motivation?
To beat me!
I once beat Jenny Wood-Allen in a sprint finish so I have the credentials.
James cracknell was a professional rower, which is a different kind of fitness to an olympic sprinter (albeit a pretty decent one).
He is also an endurance racing nut so more likely to do well over a longer distance.
Bolt is obviously stronger and fitter but I still reckon i'd beat him.
sally gunnell never looked like she was particularly taking it seriously, even when she was winning Gold. she has that very ordinary vibe, even when she is being exceptional.
Richard Whitehead sprints as well as running marathons, although I believe he only ran the 200m at the paralympics because that was the longest race for his category.
