Breaking Down Every 100M Gold Medalist Racing Each Other Since 1896

Great video put together here by The New York Times. It’s pretty fascinating how far the human athlete has developed in such a short period of time. The whole thing is definitely worth a watch, but my favorite part is the comparison of modern day 8 year-olds to 1896 Olympians.

From the video: “America’s fastest 8 year-old did the 100 meter dash in 13.46 seconds, which would have put him less than a second off third place in 1896.”
