If there is one event which people look forward to it is the 100m. Great Britain has had a fair share of success, including wins by Harold Abrahams (remember Chariots of Fire), Allan Wells and Linford Christie.
There has also been great drama and controversy, such as when Ben Johnson set a World Record, only to be banned for drug taking.
This worksheet is quite tricky. It starts with some questions concerning the times of various winners. It then goes on to ask what average speeds (metres per second) these selected athletes were running at, as well as completing a chart showing where they would all be at the end of the race if they had all run in the same race against each other.
