200 meter butterfly is a sport where the swimmers only use their arms to move themselves forward. An Olympic sized swimming pool is 50 meters, so the swimmer has to go from one end of the pool to the other end twice in order to swim 200 meters. The current world record for men is 1.51 by Micheal Phelps from the US, and the current world record for women is 2.01 by Liu Zige from China. All the previous world records have just been just a few seconds off.
The purpose is this project is see if the the near future women will be on the same athletic level as men or if they could be better. By doing this project we can see how women were before while competing with men and how women are competing with men in present day. We can see the progression and see if women will eventually beat men.
