Average man's walking stride?

The average stride length for men is 0.78 m and 0.7 m for women.

An approximation to your personal walking stride is multiplying your height with 0.415 (or 0.413 for women). For example:

1.82 (your height) x 0.415 = 0.76 m

Another way of finding out is simply taking ten steps, measuring the length and dividing that by 10.

Who is the world's fastest runner in the 40-yard dash?

The reality is that there is no single "official" time in the 40-yard dash at a Combine.

That said, Bo Jackson has the best verifiable time at a Combine with his 4.12 clocking at the New Orleans Superdome in 1986.

I assume you are referring to the 40 yard dash as it applies to American Football. Currently, there is no official recognition of any 40 yard dash time. The 40 yard dash, as measured by the NFL combine, uses a method slightly different than standard track & field. In track and field, the runner reacts to the starting gun, where as the NFL combine allows the runners to start whenever they want, with the timers starting precisely when the runner does. This gives the combine method around a .15 second advantage. Also, combine participants are timed using 2 methods - by coaches with hand-held stopwatches and electronically.

With that said, the fastest 40 yard dash runners on the planet are most likely world-class sprinters (Asafa Powell, Tyson Gay, Maurice Greene, Usain Bolt) whose track and field times would translate to very low 4 second range NFL combine-style 40 times.

Regarding the fastest 40 ever run by an NFL player, there are lots of players noted to have been clocked around 4.1, such as Darrell Green, Deion Sanders, Raghib Ismail, Joey Galloway to name but a few. There are also many notable burners over the years who could have no doubt ran in the 4.1 range, such as Willie Gault, Bob Hayes, Cliff Branch and so on. There have been pure sprinters who have tried their hands at pro football who also should be mentioned, such as Renaldo Nehemiah, Alexander Wright and Jimmy Hines.

But it is Olympic athlete, Ben Johnson, who was believed to have run 40 yards faster than any human in history. Johnson is best known for injecting steroids and winning the 100 meters at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul in 9.79 seconds, only to have his gold medal and world record stripped after failing a post-race drug test.

Timing officials have since broken down that famed race into 10-meter increments, and Johnson was so preposterously fast that he went through 50 meters in 5.52 seconds and 60 meters in 6.37 - both under the current world records at the time at those distances. He went through 40 yards that day in 4.38 seconds. But, no matter how fast he was on steroids, Usain Bolt's legal 9.69 (9.55 without slowing) 100m time (40 yards of it) blows it away. Usain Bolt's 40 yard during his 100m record was likely a VERY low 4 such as 4.09 or 4.02.

What should you do if someone tells you that you will never win a 100 meter race even though you think you can?

SHOW THEM YOU CAN WIN!!!

I would evaluate that person's qualifications and motivation for making that statement. If they were qualified, in other words, had some education , background, and active involvement in track, and if their motivation seemed to be to help, not hurt, then I would consider taking their advise. I would in fact ask them if there was another distance, or perhaps a field event, that they thought I would enjoy and perhaps excel in. If they were not qualified, and perhaps had said other hurtful things to me or other people, then I would ignore them, and continue to do whatever track and field activity I enjoyed, win or lose.
