Hi,

Tom Cruise said that he can run a quarter mile at 17mph. Thats 27.2 kmh. Is that possible for a person whose about 40 years old ? and how did he measure it :D ?

May be he wanted to prove a point to his fiancee:) ...what's the best way?..by showing his power and stamina in running.;)

Ok, I just figured out this equation:

MPH = (3600)/(4T)

Where T = the amount of time in seconds it took you to run a quarter mile (aka 400m)

Now we can derive from that equation to find T:

T = 3600/MPH/4

So,

T = 3600/17/4
T = 52.94 seconds

If what he says is correct, he can run 400 meters in 52.94 seconds.

Personally I think this is incorrect, currently the fastest 15-18 year old on my track team can run a 52 seconds 400m... So do I think a 40 year old actor can do this? No

Peace hope I think we have to mail him your calculations. I think he's talking about his character in mission impossible movies ;)

If we had his e-mail and a source to this information I think we should. But I have no clue where that bit of information came from.

Somehow that just sounds like something Tom would say. I'm remembering that he also said that he was 5'10", so I guess running faster than a speeding bullet at his age is no problem....right!

I think he could run that fast, but NOT for any noticable amount of time.

I do think hes damn in shape though for his age. Every movie is an action movie.

You're right that he's certainly in shape, and he on interviews he says that he's very proud of the fact that he does most of his own stunts....I think 'most' being the operative word.

Anyway, he probably can run fairly fast, but I think just like his height thing, he's gone over the top a bit again!
