44.73 kph ! cool!Rightly Usian is "bolt".
Is it possible? "man is the fastest accelerating animal?"
I don't know the veracity of that statement, only that I have heard that man is the fastest accelerating animal. Or should that be mammal?
I'm quite sure it isn't man. According to the following link, it's either the cheetah or greyhound:
Sorry wandreth, that site doesn't indicate that, there is part of in that refers to the speed of theses animals, but I can't find reference to acceleration.
We have Bolt = 0 - 44.73kph over 60m, greyhound = 0 - 70 kph over 30m and cheetah = 0 - 96.54kph in 3sec. Calculating the acceleration, we have Bolt = 1.287 m/sec2, greyhound = 6.301 m/sec2 and cheetah = 8.939 m/sec2. Cheetah wins.

He will run much more faster if you promised him to give $1 million if he can defeat a race horse by running only.
