Men and Women Speed Skating 1000m
What we hope to accomplish
The following information will help us see when men will outperform women or vice versa. using linear regression we will be able to tell in what year of the Olympic winter games that this will happen.
The starting year is 1976 which is L1,L2 is male gold medalists, and L3 is the female gold medalists.
One of the oldest
While not in the Olympic skating has some of the oldest roots of all the events.
This is the rest of the data.
The intersection point between two lines can reveal a lot of information.Notice how both the lines are going down. This means that the times are deceasing and the competitors are getting faster every year. Even though both of the lines are going down they are not decreasing at the same rate. men are currently out performing women and will forever outperform them because they will reach the peak before women at which they can't get any better and women will still be behind them.
The X Coordinate
The X coordinate is used to represent the year of the when men will outperform women or vice versa. the year of my X coordinate occurs in the year 2659 which isn't a year that the winter Olympics occur in. So concur that in the year 2662 which is a year for the winter Olympics that women will outperform men.
The Y Coordinate
The Y coordinate represents the time it takes them to skate the thousand meters. The time it took my skaters to out perform the men was -133 seconds or -2.21 minutes. Going by the negative you can already tell that they are going so fast that the timer is actually lagging behind them. Though it is impossible to get such a time this would be the time they would need to beat the men.
