Obafemi Martins along side Russia-based Victor Obinna have been named World Fastest players in football 2012.
The list was drawn from a combination of sprinting ability, acceleration and speed with the ball by the players.
Martins was listed in 35th position, one place ahead of Lokomotiv Moscow forward, Obinna while CSKA Moscow speedster, Musa placed 38th.
Arsenal winger Theo Walcott was first with Dutchman Arjen Robben and Aaron Lennon coming 8th and 9th respectively.
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo emerged in 14th place while Barcelona’s Lionel Messi placed 31st.
This list is mainly based on their attitude towards the ball when needed and their moves/speeds when holding the football. Big surprise to see Messi on the 31st slot while his counterpart and rival C. Ronaldo in the 14th slot.
