there are so many factors to allow a sprinter to go faster. Body type, muscle type, food/cal level, training to fine tune those muscles, the equipment; spikes and tracks. sprinter are specialised very young, by the time you are 15, it can pretty much determined what event you're going to excel at. I won't be surprised if one day human run the 100m within 8 sec but 5 is a longer stretch. running a 10 sec 100m equals average speed of 10m/s just think what can be done if eah generation slightly improves upon it.

I really don't want to sound racist or anything but has anyone noticed that most of the people who place in 100m sprint is from Kenya or somewhere like that?  They are generally taller and slimmer than most others.  That could possibly used as an example to look at.
