Fastest AI Servo tracking sensitivity? - Hah!

Why do you want to allow interruptions by obstacles to be disruptive to your tracking a person walking toward you?

From p.209 of the 7D Manual:

C.Fn III -1 AI Servo tracking sensitivity
During focusing in AI Servo AF mode, the AF sensitivity for tracking
subjects (or obstacles) moving into AF points can be set to one of five
levels.
If it is set toward [Slow], interruptions by any obstacles will be less
disruptive. It makes it easier to keep tracking the target subject.
If it is set toward [Fast], it will be easier to focus any subjects which
suddenly enter the picture from the side. Convenient when you want to
successively photograph multiple subjects located at random distances.
