Can Shaquille O'Neal Outrace the Fastest Man in the World? (VIDEO)

Can Shaquille O'Neal Outrace the Fastest Man in the World?There's some debate about who the current "Fastest Man Alive" is. Some people say it's Usain Bolt; some people say it's Tyson Gay. ... But at any rate, Tyson Gay is no worse than the second fastest man on the face of the Earth. And now, Shaquille O'Neal must beat him in a race.

'Shaq Vs.' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) is a show where O'Neal takes on the top athletes in he world, challenging them in their own sports. Tonight's match-up: Shaq versus Tyson. The pair run a 60 meter race; except that Shaq gets a 30 meter head start. Hey! That isn't exactly cool! So O'Neal only has to run half as far as Gay?

Will the world's (possibly) fastest man win, even if he has to run twice as far as Shaq? Let's watch and see. And no matter who wins, is this even a fair contest for either athlete?

A couple of points - during the episode, they made it very clear that Tyson Gay is the fastest man in America. They never said "in the world", it was limited solely to America. It's irrelevant whether Tyson or Usain Bolt is faster. Usain is not American and hence would not count as being the fastest in America.

Secondly, Shaq did not get a 30m head start - because that would imply that he ran 60m total. He only had to run 30m.

The stakes were in Shaq's favor - but the blame on that would fall on Tyson. He should have asked for 50m vs 60m, or even 45m. But when Shaq said 30 vs 60, Tyson agreed. That said, it wasn't a blowout. They ended up finishing very close.

I think this was the best episode so far. Some of the other episodes just dragged on. But this one was funny and enjoyable to watch. The part with Rachel Ray was funny too.

When did Tyson Gay become the world's fastest man ?
Are we still in denial that we were whipped at the Olympics ?
Stop being stupid the world does not begin and end here in the United States.

Fred - What's the problem? I thought that was really entertaining and I'm most kids get a kick out of that. What's wrong with you to make you so hateful? did something happen to you as a kid or is this lanuage a learned behavior? Come on dude lose the unwarranted comments or stand on the outside like most other folks who think like you do and continue to hate everyone.

Do people really pay to watch this or do they just open the gates ?

Who designed this race?!! I LOVE the "Shaq Vs" series, but the whole point here should be to devise a race that makes the outcome close ... and they should have known this would not be close. I am a 54 year old man, not even a top-notch runner, and I could still win that race! Shaq may be heavy, but he is still in great physical shape .... come on guys!
