They were running so fast their clothes were unable to keep up. The coach got tired of having to deal with the school board and the streaking problem it was creating.

If I'm correct; Sprints are short, "as-fast-as-you-can" runs. I'd understand the coaches reasoning if it was a marathon or something, but the point of sprints is that it's raw speed without conservation.

That doesn't really apply to sprints though. There's a reason many professional sprinters need to be carried off after a race. Using up all your stamina is a good thing.


I hate to break it to you but middle schoolers are not running mid to high tens. They're not running as slow as 22 if they are worth anything either, but if you are going correct someone then get your facts straight.

22s probably isnt actually unreasonable for a 6th grader. The average male is probably around the 15-16s mark. In my experience, people are WAY off the mark when they say (guess?) their 100m time. A good time for an athletic, but not sprinter-type guy would be ~13.xx.

I find it hilarious that everyone is up in arms about the OP's time in the 100m, yet nobody seems to have a problem with a 25-year-old sixth-grader.

It's a joke, people, exaggeration is part of it! In my mind, I saw a giant, hulking guy covered in acne with a shrunken scrotum running slightly faster than a bunch of gawky, little kids. I just wanted to share that image with you.

Jesus man that'd be embarrassing. In high school I ran a 14 second 100m which was actually pretty mediocre. I can't imagine middle schoolers are that much slower

That makes no sense. I'm a track coach and the only object in track is go beat the clock. come on my team we need sprinters bad! And can I have you do triple jump as well?
