I was reading through the various sports forum and found an interesting thread. It’s about sprinter height to weight ratio.
It seems that most top sprinters, according to the stats book that recorded their height and weight, all points to them being ‘light’.
For example, Shawn Crawford, standing at 1.81m is 75kg! Surprised? Well most of the top international sprinters are well within that ‘light’ height to weight ratio.
Here’s a few more sprinters with their height/weight stats.
Deji Aliu (Nigeria) 1.87m 75kg
Ato Boldon (Trinidad & Tobago) 1.76m 75kg
Usain Bolt (Jamaica) 1.96m 75kg
Darrell Brown (Trinidad & Tobago) 1.84m 70kg
Darren Campbell (Britain) 1.80m 72kg
Shawn Crawford (USA) 1.81m 75kg
Marlon Devonish (Britain) 1.83m 76kg
Jason Gardener (Britain) 1.78m 70kg
Maurice Greene (USA) 1.76m 75kg
Darvis Patton (USA) 1.83m 75kg
So what say you?
