The following reference might have what you need. I would like a
copy of this article myself. Can anyone help?

I am also enclosing some output from a computer simulation for human
sprinting. The program is based on a modification of a program I am
developing for race horses.

Enclosure:***********

Below you will see the output from a computer simulation for a 200
meter
sprint.

I have included the mens indoor and outdoor world records times (*)
for comparison. The top speed is reach at 200-210 feet (61-64 m) from

the start with a velocity of 39.75 ft/sec (12.12 m/s)

I know that others have developed simular programs, however I do not
know how my program compares to actual data. The simulation compares
very
well with world record times at distance from 150 ft on. I would
like
to know how the programs does at the start, first 50-100 ft, velocity

profile, acceleration, etc.
