The 100 Meter Dash
Olympic Regression Project- Neil Upreti
“If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.” ― Mario Andretti
The 100 meter dash, is the shortest sprint race in track and field competitions. It is one of the most popular and prestigious events in the sport of athletics. It has been contested at the Summer Olympics since 1896 for men and since 1928 for women. The reigning 100 meters Olympic champion Usain Bolt is often named "The fastest man in the world." Jamaicans Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce are the reigning world and Olympic champions in the men's and women's 100 metres. On an outdoor 400 metres running track, the 100 meteres is run on the home straight, the start is usually set on an extension to make it a straight-line race. Runners begin in the starting blocks and the race begins when an official fires the starter's pistol. Sprinters typically reach top speed after somewhere between 50–60 m. Their speed then slows towards the finish line. The times are separated from anywhere between a few seconds to a tenth of a second.

What is the Goal of the Study?
1st View of Data Table
List 1 is the year in which the Time was recorded. List 2 is the Men's Gold Medalist Times in seconds. List 3 is the Women's Gold Medalist Times in seconds.
2nd View of Data Table
The data continued, we can see that the times are decreasing as the years go by.

The data continuing some more, the slow decrease continues as well.
