Top 10 Fastest Male Sprinters Ever


One of the most exiting track and field events ever is the 100 meters’ sprint. The reason is simple: it is the only outdoor contest showing us who is the fastest with a reliable degree of certainty. Races longer than that include an element of endurance. The 100 meters’ dash is all about acceleration and max speed, which even the athlete’s body can maintain only for a short while. Here come the fastest male sprinters – top 10.

10. Donovan Bailey – 9.84s

He set his record of 9.84 seconds in the 100 meters’ as part of the Canadian relay-team at the 1996 Olympics and held it for a few years. Bailey still remains unbeaten in the 50 meters’, which he managed to sprint in 5.56 seconds the same year.
