Hull Team GB – Signpost 5

Team GB Activity

On your marks… Get set… GO!

100m sprint

You might’ve spotted this activity on the signpost!

One of the most well-known Olympic events is the 100m run.

The length of the dock wall is around 100m, so here is your chance to see how quickly you can run 100m!

Let’s begin!

Test your 100m time

  • Start at one wall and run as fast as you can to the end wall (making sure to keep a safe distance from others).
  • Ask a friend or family member to time you!
  • Did you know the Men’s world record is 9.58 seconds (Usain Bolt in 2009) and the Women’s world record is 10.49 seconds (Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1998)!

Compare your scores

  • Compare your scores to how quickly different animals can run 100m!

Compare your scores to the animals and athletes! Which animal could you run faster than?

At low tide, when the mudflats are exposed, you could check for otter tracks and House Martins collecting mud for their nests!

Check out this picture of otter tracks! Can you see any?
