The 200m champs are not getting bigger. The 100 m was decided by 0.05 seconds between someone weighing 203 lbs and someone barely weighing 172. Bolt was nowhere near 220, I posted the figures above. And Usain Bolt is the craziest freak in sprinting that has ever existed and will probably exist for some time down the road. An average to below-average starter running close to what humans theoretically can achieve.With all due respect, he’s not. The hundred meter champion this year at the world championships was a guy by the name of Fred Kerley. Fred Kerley stands at 6 foot three roughly 210 pounds. Look at bolt. Not the weight, but the height. These guys are getting bigger and bigger and bigger. They are peak athletes. This kid is no different. Am I saying he’s going to get to their level? No, that’s super rare. What do I think this kids got a shot Hell yes.
Harbor can't compete at the top level at 235 lbs in track, regardless of 100 m or 200 m. Getting bigger does not equal getting faster. It just means athletes nowadays can move far better at high amounts of weight due to better mobility training, but it doesn't mean a 230 lbs man can compete at a professional level with sprinters who are diced to the absolute minimum amount of weight they can carry.
