100 Meter Dash

Where rapido can be more rapido.

The 100 Meter Dash

This is the shortest common outdoor running distance but it is also one of the most popular sports and prestigious events in athletics. The reigning champions are considered "the fastest men/women in the world"

The Reason

The reason for this article is to see if the men and women have or ever will be equally as fast in the 100 meter dash.

Scatter plot

The square dots represent the male competitors and the Xs are the female competitors. This represents the year in witch the 100 meters were run and how fast those people ran those 100 meters. The years are from 1976-2012

The linear regression

Each line represents the trend for the male and female Olympic gold medalist times. Red represents the female trend line and blue represents the male. They both have a negative correlation meaning that they are both becoming faster but the men are becoming faster quicker.

The Cross

The men and women's trends cross before the actual data that was recorded which means that the men and women are both becoming faster but the man are becoming faster quicker. If there were Olympics in 1859 both men and women would be running the 100 meters at the same time of 11.69 seconds.

The x coordinate

The x coordinate is for the year and when they achieved that certain time period. On the calculator on the top, it says that both men and women would be running the same speed on the year 1859 but we wouldn't know because there were no Olympic games during that time.

The y coordinate

The y coordinate stands for the amount of time it took for the person to complete the 100 meters. On the calculator on the top, it says that when they were running at the same time it would probably be at the speed of 11.69 seconds.
