Short Description

World’s Fastest Human. That is the title bestowed on the man with the best time in the 100 meter dash. This event is the centerpiece of track and field, the collective name for events that are based on running, jumping and throwing. Who is the fastest? Who can jump the highest? Who can throw the farthest? These are the questions men have been challenging each other to answer for centuries. The World’s Fastest Human was Jamaica’s Usain Bolt in 2015, but for nearly 100 years, women have taken up the challenge as well. Female stars like Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Yelena Isinbayeva have inspired little girls to dream of running faster and jumping higher over the decades. Those girls have grown into the stars of today, like Alyson Felix, Genzebe Dibaba and Barbora Špotáková. Each book in the Inside the World of Sports series takes you from the very beginning of a sport to a look at its future. Inside these pages, learn more about track and field’s greatest moments, iconic athletes, and what the future holds for the sport.
