    So I have been looking into this for a while now, and no one has been able to give an explanation. Perhaps Andy Coggan can provide an explanation, since he made the chart.

    The top of the 5 second column is 24w/kg.
    Some elite match sprinters weigh in the 95-100kg zone.
    That equals 2280-2400watts.
    Am I wrong in assuming that peak 1 second power should be about 250watts above 5 second power? (that's the case for me)

    Because this means that a peak reading of 2500-2650watts would be possible.

    How come we have never heard of this kind of peak wattage? I have searched and searched, but the highest I ever heard of was 2300-2400, which is extremely rare.
    Marty Nothstein, back in 2000, stated his peak was 2200, and he weighed 98kg then.

    It just doesn't add up.
    Any experts what to give their opinion?

    Upon checking my files i see peaks of ~ 2500 W. obviously, that's not my file but someone else's data.
