Re: Mars Olympia

Can you run faster on Mars? I presume you can because you have the same muscle power but third weight, but I've never read about that. And if you can how much faster? Not 62% I guess. But there's less air resistance as well of course. I'd guess 20% faster - so a mile could be run in about 3mins 5 secs.

Of course you need our breathing apparatus for the moment - but what about in doors in a low pressure earth air environment?
