Everyone loves a good stat don’t they? And often the more surprising the better.
And when it comes to shocking stats then there are rarely any more surprising than those which chart just how quick Premier League players are running.
Each and every year it seems as though that huge, lumbering centre-back you’d written off is actually quicker than that fast, nimble forward that everyone knows is lightning, and the latest batch of numbers for the current season is just the same.

    Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin calls out Usain Bolt in sprint challenge

    Hector Bellerin has alread set a time of 4.42 seconds over a distance of 40 metres


    Arsenal speed demon Hector Bellerin has called out Jamaican world-record holder and nine-time Olympic king Usain Bolt to a sprint challenge.

    The Gunners right back broke Theo Walcott’s 40m club sprint record last year setting a time of 4.42 seconds over a distance.

    Jamaican sprinter Bolt, who won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m in Rio to complete his ‘triple-triple’ of Olympic titles, set the current 100m world record at the World Championships in Berlin seven years ago when he clocked 9.58 seconds.

    During that race he took 4.64 seconds to cover the first four tenths of the track which means the Spaniard would have been a full two metres ahead of Bolt at the 40 metre mark had they lined up together in 2009.

    Now Bellerin, who signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2011, has laid down the gauntlet to the fastest man on the planet.

    Asked about a potential race between himself and Bolt, the Arsenal defender said: “It’s not me you have to ask, I’ve been waiting for that phone call from Jamaica.

    “I challenged him a while ago and he said maybe after Rio. So I’m just waiting now, need to push him.”

    The 21-year-old was involved in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night after Alexis Sanchez helped the Londoners grab a valuable point in the French capital and Bellerin is confident of a good run in the competition.

    “Definitely to make it further in the Champions League. I thought it was a great point because it wasn’t the greatest of starts,” he said.

    “We’re very confident as a team, we’ve been together for a few seasons now. We’ve had some great additions to the team and there’s a lot of hunger and desire.”

    1 位の Shane Long は、
    時速 35.31 km/h、分速 588.50 m/min、秒速 9.81 m/sec。
    100 m を 10秒20 で走る速さだ。

    8 位の吉田麻也や Theo Walcott は、
    時速 34.78 km/h、分速 579.67 m/min、秒速 9.66 m/sec。
    100 m を 10秒35 で走る速さだ。


    10 位のHector Bellerin がウサイン・ボルトより速いといわれているくらいだから、その速さがわかろうというものだ。
