Usain Bolt is the world record holder in the 200m dash, men's. Set at the Berlin world championships of 2009.
I have absolutely no clue but i waz jus wondering is Jake L asking this question cuz Jake is absolutely obsessed with weightlifting!
The current women's world record in the 400 meters is held by Marita Koch of (East) Germany who set the mark in 1985 at 47.60 seconds.
Florence Griffith-Joyner has held on to her world record since 1988. Her sprint time was 10.49 seconds. Meanwhile Usain Bolt from Jamaica holds the Men's record of 9.58 seconds since 2012.
you should be doing 400m on 1.56 that's what im doing and im 12 for 800m you should be running about 2.40-50 or 2.35 that`s what i do and im 12 but depending on how old you are depends on what times you should be gettin ;)
You get to the finish line before the other competitors get there...
There are many strategies involved. The most common of these is to accelerate as fast as possible in the first 100 meters, then conserve your energy and maintain speed for the back straight away. Finally kick with everything you have left for the last 200m. If you're not quit fit enough to maintain such a long kick, the finish is the most important. Many reports I've seen say that your first 200m should be a tiny bit slower than your fastest. One other thing to keep in mind is that you have to stay in the race to be able to pull it out in the end. Never let the competition get too far ahead.
Due to the curved/circular path of the track, the diameter is longer with each lane that moves outwards. Runners start at intervals for the 400 meter dash so that all runners end up running 400 meters in the end and not more or less.
4 laps if it's a regular 400m track. Like the track at football fields you see in high school.
At our High School track meet a boy in the 9th grade finished with a 2 minute 800 meter. Female finished with a 2 min 30 second which was two seconds over third place for boys. That's fast... is it the best? You tell me what your schools top scores are and we will find out... Yelm, WA
well it depends on the type of event you want to do. if you are doing sprints then i would recommend using sprinting spikes which are super light weight and have only a very thin heel because you don't need to use your heel. but if you are doing longer running events like the 800, 1600, etc., i would use long distance spikes which are the same as sprinting spikes but with a thicker heel because you would run heel- toe
A dash refers to a sprint (100 meters to 400 meters) while a run refers to longer distances.
I would say 35 seconds would be good
I am 49 and I run 34
400m every lane is the same distance.
Yes, the above is true in a 400 metre race!
However, if you are training or running for fitness or pleasure on a track, signs often tell you not to run on the inside lane, and you may wonder like I have what the distance is around various lanes.
See the answer in this website to: "What is the length of each lane on a running track?"
The line around which you run in lane #6 is approximately 440 meters long (439.898 meters long, to be mathematically more precise).
Stand with your feet side by side on the start line, then put on foot behind the other, and come onto the balls of your feet. As soon as the pistol goes off, spring off of your foot to get a good start. Its an all out sprint to the end, so give it everything you have.
(Im a high school track runner)
Marita Koch currently holds the women's world record in the 400 meter dash at 47.60 seconds set in 1985. She set the world record seven times and broke her own world record five times. Marita Koch's world record times: 1) 49.19 seconds - broke the existing world record of Irena Szewinska (49.28 seconds) on July 2, 1978.
2) 49.03 seconds - broke her own world record on August 19, 1978.
3) 48.94 seconds - broke her own world record on August 31, 1978.
4) 48.89 seconds - broke her own world record on August 4, 1979.
5) 48.60 seconds - broke her own world record on August 29, 1979.
6) 48.16 seconds - broke her own world record on September 8, 1982.
7) 47.60 seconds - broke the existing world record of Jarmila Kratochvilova (47.99 seconds) on October 6, 1985.
I'm not sure what's an average time but a 51 second 400m is very good for a 16 year old. (Top in Ontario for sure).
The fastest eleven year old 800 metre time is not certain as that track officials don't normally post it on the web but i have experience in 800m and i know that it is in the range of 2:30 to 2:50.
2.50 for an 11yo?
No - 2.20 is very good for an 11yo - and there would be some who have run it in 2.15 or faster.
The NSW record for an 11yo is 2.15 and the Australian national record is 2.11.
The NSW State 11yo title was won recently in 2.20 and the 10 yrs in 2.23. Sort of puts 2.30-2.50 into perspective.
mine is 2:28 but im 13. so if you can get that you will win medal in all of your meets.
Ok, In the 1981 English Championships, Inter Counties, a kid (12) ran 2.05 Erik Kimani, i remember i was running about 2.24 at 12 and was blown away when i saw the 10 top english times, This kid, with a beard, was 7 seconds, or was it 9 seconds faster than the next fastest kid. His 1500 was 4.05 If i remember.
For men running under a 60seconds would be good for a 12 year old. Towards the end of High school for an 18 year old a good time would be about 48seconds. And College should range from 44-47 for a good 400m.
i'm in 7th grade and 12 turning 13 and my fastest time was 1:48
i'd say about umm 13.5-14 well my little sister is 11 at the moment but she runs a 12.00
i would say a good 100m time for a 10 year old boy is around 16-17secs. I am an 11 year old girl and ran the 100m in 15.9 secs.
Judging that you are giving a 200m time, I would assume that you are a sprinter. This means that your second 200 will most likely be slower than your first so you should run around 50-51sec for your 400.
