Data tracking has become an important element of the game in recent times, with teams monitoring GPS information and other modern technologies to learn more about their players.
Afl.com.au has released data from the AFL Live app’s Telstra Tracker, containing the leaders of speed and distance at every club.
To put some of this into context, Usain Bolt’s fastest speed recorded was 44.72 km/h in the 2009 World Championships in Berlin.
Here is a list of the players who cover the most ground and are the quickest in the competition, numbers courtesy of the AFL Live app.
