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.

1st January 2011: As by end of 2010, the highest speed of human

recorded was of 44.72 km/h (27.79 mph), seen during a 100 meters

sprint (average speed between the 60th and the 80th meter) by Usain
