Patrick Dangerfield and Charlotte Caslick (Rugby 7's) in a Sprint Race - Who Ya Got?

I am full Olympio right now - I usually get on board when the athletics start but this year with the timing of the games coinciding with my couch time during the day, I;m all over it.

Earlier this week the women's rugby 7's team won gold for Australia which included this absolutely ridiculous effort from captain Charlotte Caslick:

I have this nifty little app that lets me time specific area's of a video so I was able to time her run and this is what I finished with:

Total Distance - 59m in a time of about 8.28secs at 7.12 meters per second (m/s) average speed

I timed the full run in smaller distances:

10m - 1.48secs or 6.76 m/s
10m - 1.41secs or 7.1m/s
22m - 2.56secs or 8.6m/s
17m - 2.83secs or 6m/s

NOTE - these distances are based on straight line running and she was running on an angle that looks something like 20 degrees which would make her times and m/s numbers even better! I'm sure a math wiz could work out the correct distance based on the angle or whatever.

Let's have a look at Danger and this goal from 2011 with a most impressive run:


Danger ran about 50m in a total time of about 8.1m or 6.17m/s but note that he started from an almost deadstart.

His breakdown looks like this:

0 - 10m - 1.52 secs or 6.5m/s
10 - 20m - 1.11secs or 9.1m/s
20 - 30m - 1.31secs or 7.63m/s

Compare this to Australian 100m record holder Josh Ross 10.08 or 9.92m/s and Usain Bolt's 100m world record of 9.58secs or 10.44m/s. He also holds the 150m world record of 14.35secs or 14.45m/s which is even faster and his 200m world record of 19.19 is a terrible 10.42m/s!

So obviously Danger wins this time but holy shit if that wasn't the best run I've seen by a female I'll go he and with the women's league hitting our shores next year, expect to see this type of stuff in the coming years.
