Yesterday I stumbled over a typing competition in the US from 2010. The winner managed to type 163 words per minute on average! I'd be happy about half of that.

Wow thats a lot. I only manage 70 wpm.
holy shit, i can sometimes hit something in the 90s if it's a good day
I think 80-90 is doable for me on good days and easy texts as well. But I'm rarely writing lots of text and if so then only in short bursts (in a blog article for example) so I don't really see the bottleneck in typing speed.
100-120 wpm is fairly "easily" achievable before the return on investment from practicing drops precipitously. I say this as a Typeracer stan.
Precipitous was a new word for me. Thank you.
