WOMEN VS. MEN

Will Men Always be Psychically Stronger than Women?

Dating all the way back to 1960, women have been competing in Speed Skating along side men. Men have statistically had faster finish times than women have. However, as time advances, women are catching up to men immensely. Women's finishing times have decreased by 31.69 seconds from 1960-2014. Men's times have decreased by 25.4 seconds. Although men are still reigning in their position for fastest finish time, women are improving at a faster rate than men.
