I suspect that your sentence conveys meaning or a statement about ability, and not so much about the speaker's disbelief that his sister could run that fast.

I have a feeling that 姿勢 and 態勢 may be metaphorical, and 体勢 seems to be more physical/physiological.

comment Mapping 16 English tenses to Japanese tenses
We don't intend to be mean. It is that we are unable to attempt to map the elements if we do not have the domain. Your choice of 16 candidates may be different from other analyses of a different number of tenses.

comment When did LOC adopt modified Hepburn?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is about romanisation instead of being about the Japanese language. It's also not really about romanisation, but about the history of the change.

comment 必要{ひつよう} vs 要{い}ります
The additional questions are not related to the question, and are not particularly suitable to form separate questions as they are now since We don't do translations. You are welcome to ask such questions on chat, however you require 20 rep to enter I think, so ask a couple more questions or wait for a few more upvotes.
