We know Usain Bolt is extremely quick. We all know a cheetah is extremely fast. We know your average human being isn’t super speedy.
However, that hasn’t stopped a simulation of the three in a 100m race from racking up over 16 million views on YouTube.
Clearly people are interested to see the difference in pace between the three.
For context, it takes the Jamaican’s 100m world record time and pits it against the animal and the normal human.
Between each of the competitors, there is around a five-second difference, with the average person taking 15 seconds to complete the race, Bolt 9.58 and the Cheetah 5.95 seconds.
The video shows a variety of camera angles of the virtual race, but it’s the last angle that does the most justice as it’s from the finishing line. This means people can see the difference in time between the three.
Unsurprisingly, the cheetah is waiting a substantial amount of time before Bolt finishes, and then the pair are waiting a similar amount of time for the average person to finish.
Incredibly, the cheetah used is only the average speed of a generic cheetah, whereas for the human representation we have Bolt, the fastest human ever with his fastest ever 100m time, and the average human speed.
