Christensen Bringing World's Fastest Human Contest to Ohio

Rich Christensen, creator and host of the hit television series "PINKS", is bringing his World's Fastest Human Contest to Geneva, Ohio, in an exclusive 5 year deal with the visionary founder of the SPIRE Institute.  "The fastest athletes on the planet can run around 28 miles-per-hour," said Christensen.  "Experts tell me that a "30" mile-per-human simply doesn't exist and won't exist for another several hundred years.  I plan to prove the experts wrong."  Christensen will be offering "cash-for-speed" with the ultimate goal of finding the first human who can reach the 30 mile-per-hour threshold.  The first step, however, is to find the world's first 29 mile-per-hour human.  Here's how it will work:  With an unlimited running start, a qualified contestant will run through a 10 meter speed-trap where their time will be captured and immediately converted to miles-per-hour.  The first human to achieve 29 miles-per-hour will receive $100,000.  Larger cash prizes will be awarded for the 29.5 and 30 mile-per-hour benchmarks.

All the history making attempts will be streamed "live" on the Internet and will take place exclusively at the world-class, indoor track that is also the home of the SPIRE Academy.  The contest will start on April 2, 2018 and run until April 2, 2023, with attempts being available to contestants 24/7, 365 days a year.  Once the contest starts, Christensen will not leave the track facility for an incredible 60 months.  "It's an easy sacrifice to make in my quest to discover the outer limits of human performance," said Christensen.  "I have no doubt that this contest will be responsible for cracking the mysteries and unknowns of the human speed code."
