  1. I did a post about part of this a while back. In a hundred years, the 100m sprint record is separated by one second. Donald Lippincot was the record holder. I thought with all the training and diet, facilities and whatnot, that was pretty amazing. And Lippincot was a screw off.

  2. It’s not hard running in a straight line, but fear AND a bit of crazy will push the limits of what people will do.

  3. Gymnasts now are definitely more agile and more fit. Back then they didn’t seem to be doing much. Now, though, that’s another matter.

  4. I’ve always had an interest in gymnastics, but now watching the comparison between the two, I’m suddenly less sure about trying it out.

  5. Interesting post. Off hand, I would attribute the improvements to better nutrition, better coaching, better training facilities and more personal time to pursue athletic interests at a professional level.
