A physics study conducted in Brazil has made some interesting observations about Mario’s running speed and jump height.
Pedro Henrique Evers, a Logistic Engineer student from Joinville, conducted the study by using a free software called Tracker.
With the help of Tracker, Pedro found Mario could run at 52km/h. That’s greater than Usain Bolt, the fastest human being alive, whose top speed is 44.5 km/h.
Lastly, Mario could jump up to nearly 6m high, about 2.5 times the 2.45m world record.
Here’s a comparison of Mario’s running speed to other animals and a car:
