Calorie Expenditure During/After Sprinting

I just wondered how many calories do you spend during 100m sprint,and after that. A lot of people told me that during the sprint itself the calorie expenditure isn’t big.But the calorie expenditure after sprinting is huge. So let’s say a person weighing 80KG runs 10x100M sprints. Can anyone calculate roughly? Thanks in advance.

Not sure if you could effectively estimate that. My assumption is that it would be different for each person depending on how hard they ran, how experienced they are in sprinting, how fast they can run, their general fitness level, etc.

Sorry I’m not of more help.
