Best 100m times:
Usain Bolt (world record holder) - 9.58 secs
Carlin Isles (Fastest in rugby sevens) - 10.13
Tonderai Chavhanga (Fastest in Super Rugby) - 10.27
Bryan Habana (Springbok) - 10.4
Joe Rokocoko (former All Black) - 10.66
Doug Howlett (former All Black) - 10.68



Saw something where Isles is actually quicker to 40m than Bolt then the stride /height difference (6'5" vs 5'8") kicks in gives Bolt the advantage and he pulls away from the rest of the world. What would be interesting would be the quickest 40m times in actual rugby conditions - ball in hand, standing start (no blocks), rugby boots, and on a pitch.
