When you say steps taken, do you mean just the number of steps, regardless of other factors?
If so then I would expect them to be fairly similar, it’s not difficult for the average sprinter to maintain the same strike rate as an elite sprinter. It’s the other parts that make the difference between fast and slow, like the ratio of ground time to air time, stride length, speed of foot touchdown relative to forward velocity etc.
EDIT: Dr Ralph Mann’s ‘The Mechanics of Sprinting and Hurdling’ would answer pretty much every question you could ever have on this subject. Which is what I’m basing my response on.
