Interesting collection of really short articles from the New Scientist about what they believe the human maximum is in strength, speed, memory & a host of other abilities. Check it out here

I'm a dreamer at heart and like to think we've barely scraped the surface of what the human body can accomplish. As to sprinting for example I'd expect someone someday to keep accelerating all the way to the finish line of the 100 meters.

That would be something! They'd have to have either exceptional reserves of ATP or incredible re-synthesising ability to go a full 100m. Something I read in in an nutriton text book the other day estimated that a person uses about 40Kg of ATP per day, in wiki it reckons most people use around their bodyweight in ATP per day (obviously the ATP is used, then rebuilt from ADP). It would be something to see that!
