Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

i got da sickest question fo ya'll playas, ow long does it take, to run the 100 meters...in 10 seconds.

- Gazza

A: Dear Gazza,

Um...10 seconds?

Or years of training and hard work coupled with some extraordinary athletic ability.

Or nearly seventy years, from the first Olympic 100 meter dash (12 minutes in 1894) to the first Olympic 100 meter dash to be done in ten seconds or better (1964).
