    World-class sprinters Michael Johnson and Donovan Bailey are said to also have hit speeds of 27 mph, but only for a very short period of time.  Note that the speed at which humans run is determined not so much by the quickness with which they move their legs, but by the force they exert on the ground to propel themselves through space at maximum velocity.
