Time taken = 2 min 20 sec = 140 sec. 

Radius, r = 100 m. 

In 40 sec the athlete complete one round. 

So, in 140 sec the athlete will complete = 140 ÷ 40 = 3.5 round. 

⇒ Distance covered in 140 sec = 2πr × 3.5 = 2 × 22/7 × 100 × 3.5 = 2200 m. 

At the end of his motion, the athlete will be in the diametrically opposite position. ⇒ Displacement = diameter = 200 m.
