Since it takes me longer than 10 seconds to move 100 meters in a car, I have no idea what makes a good sprinter. But I was wondering if wearing sunglasses really helps?

I figured it was a wind-in-the-eyes thing.

It never clicked how fast these guys were really going until the CBC announcer commented that the men's 100m sprint is done at 43km/h (27mph).
