    I think I am a Debby Downer because I’m fairly convinced that Olympians are faster than ever due to drug use. I mean, our shoes and swimsuits haven’t evolved enough to make sense of the difference. Nor has humanity!

        I agree that doping might be, or probably is, part of it. However, t it also has to do with the sport becoming more popular, tapping into/recruiting talent, and using scientific research to create the most effective training and diet plans. Of course 21st century runners are going to be faster than their predecessors 100, 50 or even 20 years ago.

    I didn’t understand the track cycling sprint thing either!

    I saw the swim comparison when it came out, but I hadn’t seen the running comparison video — thanks for the link! It’s so fascinating to see how the winners in the earliest Olympic games wouldn’t stand a chance at competing in 2012.

    Ah! Those videos are SO cool. It’s amazing how much swimming and running has evolved. It will definitely be interesting to see how much more it evolves too!

    That is crazy to think about – what we consider fast now (aka Bolt) is not going to be gold medal worthy in 20 years. Makes you think when we’ll reach the point when we can’t actually get any faster.
