Judging by the soccer aid game here on itv, traore looks way faster from a standing start and at full pelt

Traore is faster than usain bolt

 
Traore might be quicker over the first 10-20 metres or so. Quite a few of Bolts opponents were.

The Biomechanical Breakdown of Bolt’s Race

The Acceleration Phase (0-30m)

Unfortunately for Bolt, the sprint start and the acceleration phase account for 64% of the total result in the 100m dash. This creates a major disadvantage for taller sprinters, who are often poor starters.
Bolt’s reaction times are generally much slower than the 0.1s allowed and physics noticeably hampers him during the acceleration phase.

The Physics:

The acceleration is proportional to the force produced when pushing off the blocks but there is an inverse relationship between acceleration and body mass.
This means that height is a disadvantage because the force also has to overcome the drag produced by a bigger body.
Sprinters with well-developed, strong muscles attached to shorter limbs promote more rapid movements and a greater force, which gives them an initial advantage.

Hardly ever does anyone get to sprint 100 meters in a football match. I think the maximum length of a pitch is 120m.

20-30m sprints maybe and, as has been said, Bolt isn’t noted for his starts. AT might have an advantage over a very short distance, but no more.

I thought Bolt did well,tonight albeit in a bit of a daft game.

I bet I’m not the only one who thought Adama on the wing and Bolt down the middle, at least Bolt would have half a chance of being able to keep up with Adamas runs down the wing....

I think a few of you should take the blinkers off and recognise there is a big difference between a 100m race in the Olympics which is over in a few seconds and a football match which lasts over 90 minutes. Nothing to say Bolt would be quicker than Adama after his first couple of bursts and certainly nothing to suggest Bolt could carry the ball as quickly as Adama does.

But don’t let that obvious difference get in the way of a bit of Adama ‘putting down’ eh?

I remember back in the day before you got paid to do athletics, i.e you could only earn prize money there was a scottish guy who was faster than the olympic champion at the time but he ran professionally in shows etc for money so couldnt compete. Usain Bolt is the fastest man in athletics doesnt mean he is the fastest man in the world. Am sure there will be faster men in other sports which command more money, wide receiver in American football for example.

I agree with the OP. Not sure why the grief.
"Judging by the soccer aid game here on itv, traore looks way faster from a standing start and at full pelt"

So, judging purely on the game, Bolt did not look as fast as Traore. That's all. Judging on that game I would agree.

If Bolt trained on grass it would be a better comparison. Also to start from a standing start rather than a normal sprinter's crouch start.

There are examples of sprinters who have turned out to be highly competitive in other sports (J J Williams) but I can't think of a top sportsman in his field becoming an international athlete.

You don't need to make up situations about training on grass etc. Traore has been doing what he does every day for his entire life. He is quicker than any other player I've ever seen in those quick bursts he does. It is perfectly plausible he is faster than Bolt at that specific thing. Nobody is suggesting he would beat him out the blocks over 100m but from a standing start, over 5-10m with a ball at his feet then he is probably faster.

Not making things up. I saw J J Williams as an international sprinter, club rugby player and international rugby player. It took him a season to get used to sprinting on grass before he became an excellent rugby player.

Lynn Davies, a useful sprinter as well as long jumper, also played 3 times for Wales in rugby.

I think he was based on what he said. There were no riders about how the standing start took place or on what surface.

If he was talking about grass, I'd expect Bolt to be slower for a few months, possibly a year to get back a year of not training, but even at 31 he'd end up being quicker.

Adama wouldn't have beat bolt in a 100m sprint but I don't see the point of crying laughing face or that it's 'ridiculous' when the reality is Adama wouldn't be far off and probably would beat him out of the blocks.

Honestly while bolt is in the uk touring football clubs if enough of a fuss was made on twitter I wouldn't be surprised if a race could happen. Adams's Sponsors would love it.

Adama would only be quicker than Bolt when dribbling the ball at his feet due to his better ball control.

Standard foot race of course Bolt would destroy Adama.

Bale is the current fastest footballer at about 85% the speed of Bolt. Traore was the 7th fastest in the premier league last season, about 2km/hr slower than Bale.

You may be right. There is one source putting him at 7th, but on the Premier League site he wasn't too 20.

Faster than Usain Bolt?

From 2015 …

When Usain Bolt broke the 100m world record in 2009, it took him 4.64 seconds to run the first 40m. But it's been reported that arsenal defender Hector Bellerin ran the same distance in 4.41 seconds. So could Bellerin beat Bolt in a race?

You’d be better off comparing Traore to the fastest 60m runners than Bolt or even the 40 yard dash times from the NFL combines. Traore never runs 100m and certainly not all at full pelt and the best sprinters tend to be the ones who can maintain top speed for longer rather than the quickest accelerators out of the blocks. That’s what set Bolt apart from the rest.

‘Traore never runs 100m’.

Adama will do the 100m but only if there are at least 6 players to beat along the track.

He may zig zag a bit as he leaves the opposition players for dead but overall he will manage a good 100m on a burst from just outside his own penalty area.

And didnt Traore destroy BEllerin in a counter attack with the ball at his feet?

Bolt doesn't go flat out over the first 20m. He's has the same principle as Carl Lewis started - it's more important to get initial long stride distance; although slower at the start, it pays dividends from midway.

There are a lot of indoor 60m world champions who don't feature much at 100m
