Sprints are short running events in athletics and track and field. Races over short distances are among the oldest running competitions. The first 13 editions of the Ancient Olympic Games featured only one event - the stadion race, which was a race from one end of the stadium to the other. There are three sprinting events which are currently held at the Summer Olympics and outdoor World Championships: the 100 meter sprint, 200 meter, and 400 meter. These sprint race events have their roots in races of imperial measurements which were later altered to metric: the 100m evolved from the 100 yard dash, the 200 meter distances came from the furlong (or 1/8 of a mile), and the 400 meter was the successor to the 440 yard dash or quarter-mile race. At the professional level, sprinters begin the 100 meter race by assuming a crouching position in the starting blocks before leaning forward and gradually moving into an upright position as the race progresses and momentum is gained.
The 100 meter sprint, or 100 meter dash, is a sprint race in track and field competitions. The shortest common outdoor running distance, the 100m is one of the most popular and prestigious events in the sport of athletics. It has been contested at the Summer Olympics since 1896 for men and 1928 for women. The reigning 100m Olympic champion is often named the fastest man or woman in the world. Jamaicans Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce are the reigning world and Olympic champions in the men's and women's 100 meter dash, respectively. On an outdoor 400 meter running track, the 100m race sprint is run on the home straight, with the start usually being set on an extension to make it a straight-line race. 100m runners begin in the starting blocks and the sprint race begins when an official fires the starter's pistol. Sprinters typically reach top speed after somewhere between 50-60 meter. Their speed then slows towards the finish line. The 100m (109.361 yards) emerged from the metrication of the 100 yards (91.4 meter), a now defunct distance originally contested in English-speaking countries. The 100 meter dash event is largely held outdoors as few indoor facilities have a 100 m straight.
