His start has been his weakness. If he can improve that, then I think he will be much faster...

We did a similar investigation to the one that you have outlined above and then went further to calculate how long Bolt's stride is. The children came up with the idea of counting his paces and then using this information to calculate the answer. More fun followed when we compared it to their stride length!<br />Thanks for your continuing inspiration, UrsulaAnonymousnoreply@blogger.com
