What is the fastest speed of a human?
The fastest speed of a human running was set by Maurice Greene, who achieved a sprint speed of 26.7 mph.
Note that is anarobic : the highest sustained speed is just over 15 miles an hour - i.e. a 4 minute mile.
So the first is the limit of the legs, the second the limit of the heart.
