Topic: 200 metres


  
  Sprint (race) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 60 metres is normally run indoors, on a section inside an indoor athletic track (which is only 200 m long).
The 100 metres is the best-known sprint distance, and alongside the mile and the marathon it is arguably athletics' most prestigious event.
The ability to "run a good bend" is key at this distance, as a well conditioned runner will be able to run 200 metres in an average speed higher than his 100 m speed.

 200 metres - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This feat has been achieved eight times at the Olympic Games, the last by Carl Lewis in 1984.
An Olympic double of 200 m and 400 m was first achieved by Valerie Brisco-Hooks in 1984, and later by Michael Johnson and Marie-José Perec in 1996.
On an outdoor 400 m track, the race begins on the curve and ends on the home straight, so a combination of techniques are needed to successfully run the race.

Interestingly, the RR for 500-599 metres was 1.36 (36% increased risk), which was the highest ratio between 200 and 599 metres.
This is extremely important, as it means that harmful isotopes of heavy metals such as lead, polonium and cadmium in the atmosphere have a five to six times greater chance of being deposited in your lungs, potentially increasing the harmful effects of air pollution by up to 500%.
According to Professor Henshaw of Bristol University the effects of corona ions are unlikely to be present at all within 150 metres of powerlines, but could quite easily be the major factor in the increase in leukaemia seen greater than 200 metres away.
