My understanding re: Flo-jo example but also generally is that many more than 2x10m segments in a row the “same” (unless I am misinterpreting the numbers…similar numbers indicate that whatever that velocity is is being maintained, correct?) raises the immediate question of, “Was true MaxV reached?”…as Jeremy said the idea/theory partially was that if true MaxV was attained it is next to “impossible” to sustain it for more than about 20m and if the numbers show that it was sustained, then was true MaxV achieved?
In either case, scary. IF someone has figured out how to sustain very high velocities (say WR level) and others can not…or, as with Bolt, the above theory is true, then that he should be capable of even higher velocity is almost frightening. The flip side being if someone has figured it out it is only a matter of time until the methodology is “known” and then it is a matter of application…the other, even higher velocity, is, shall we say, more problematic.
