I can run the 40yd in 4.8 seconds. If I played football for my highschool I'd be the fastest kid on it almost. To bad the only sport I play is Tae Kwon Do. The art of kicking butt. I'm the next Bruce Lee...not really. I'm also 6ft and 150lbs.

{R.A.U.}ThePoonisher :happy:


lol Same here except 'm 6'2". I need to gain some weight. Right now I have weight training and we do endurance/sprints/agility for the first 45 min. of class, so I'm getting faster.

I used to do MMA until we moved; I finished my 19th month the day before we left. That was always fun.

Freshman year i could do 120 yards in 10 seconds...so idk if thats fast or not you tell me. :D


No offense, but that's a lie. You'd be a world record holder (World record for a 100m is above 9.5 seconds, around 9.89 I think... 120yd is over 100m, around 110m).

Personally, I used to run 200m. Before a hip injury, which has slowed me down a little, I would split my first 100m in 13-14, and my second in 11 flat or less. And since it's with a running start, yeah that's quick, but not so impossible.

Figured it out to be about 20.5mph, top speed. World record for a 200m, last split is around 9 seconds for 100m, or around 25mph (wow!). 120 yards in 10 seconds would be 24.5mph average, which is darned quick including acceleration time.

I'm not fast but I am in good shape. I can run 3-4 miles without stopping, thanks to wrestling practice.

i used this website to figure out how fast i run
http://www.1728.com/velocity.htm
since my 100m time is 12.8, i put in 12.8 seconds and 100 meters and it gave me my MPH time, which was 17.47
the poll says 100ft so my 100ft time is probably faster than my 300ft(100m) time :wub:

I can run from the starting bunker to the 40 mark at the field I go to in about 3 seconds.
The distance is about 40-45ft, so I can run at about 10mph.

I'm back from a long long long time of no paintball, drooling over markers older then I am.

*cough* bull plop *cough*

wait, who said that?

Seriously, that is 20 meters and .16 seconds more, than the Olympic 100m dash record. Seems a little far fetched to me.

I'm sorry, but i cannot tolerate people who exaggerate. Amazing i play paintball, huh? As a matter of fact, most of the replies in this thread are exaggerations or false memories, I don't want to point any more fingers though.

Don't believe me? *pdf warning* http://www.usoc.org/education/general_olym...pic_records.pdf

Now, how fast can I sprint? To lazy to convert to MPH, but 12.5 second 100. Not as fast as everybody else in the thread Posted Image

According to the above source, the record for 200 meters is 19.32 seconds. He says he can run a 200 in about 24-25 seconds. I have seen people run a 100 in 11 seconds at my very small track meets. That is 2 seconds slower than the world record. He claims to run a 200 in 6 seconds slower than the world record. I could easily have looked at 200 meter times for my high school, but instead i used my problem solving skills. Why? because i didn't think of option B at the time. Im done proving my point, I hope you all have a good night (or day).

I totally thought this was 100 yards, not 100 feet. I've never timed myself at 100 feet.

:wacko: That's insanely fast. We had to run 8 of those for soccer with 60 seconds rest between each and I averaged at 15 seconds. If I were to give it one go and sprint as hard as I could I would probably get a 12 or 13 second time.

My 40m time is a 5.18s.

lol we had 20 seconds to get to the end of the field (120 yards) and 40 seconds to get back. Then we had a minutes rest and we did it again. Try doing 4 of those and not throwing up afterwards. :rolleyes: i know i did the first few times i did


sorry but that's not that hard. try running 120yards in 20sec. then you have 25sec. to get back to the start. then the rest time is about 30-40sec. now doing one of these isn't to hard, but do it about 6 times at the end of a practice. and the 120yrds in 10sec is a lie, cause tat means you'd be running under a 4sec. 40yrd sprint, not gonna happen

neat poll though, maybe try again but specify if its in mph or a time the numbers represent

I don't know anyone I play paintball with that can outrun me. Haven't been beaten to the middle yet :rolleyes:. I used to run around 20mph at the start of high school. That was...5 years ago. I'm not really sure how fast I am in MPH anymore. I'm sure I'd be a hell of a lot faster if I'd hit the gym and the track again, though...
