Ok, settle a dispute for me and a buddy! In the 1988 Olympics, Ben Johnson, of Canada, ran a 9.79 second 100m dash. So if this time were to be converted to a 100y dash, the time would be 8.9 seconds, correct? He says 8.79, and I say 8.9...which is right? Thanx.

100 meters is about 109.36 Yards.
That means it would take 100/109.36 as long to run 100 yards as it would to run 100 meters.
This is assuming speed is constant, which isn't true for running, but would be ok for an approximation.
