By: Paul Chinnam
The Reason of the Article
The reason for this article is to show data that proves women will eventually surpass the men's times in the 4x100 medley relay.
The Goal of the Study
The goal of this study is to compare the men and women gold medalist's times from 1976 to 2012 for the 4x100 medley relay to predict when the women will surpass the men's time or if they'll have a slower time than the men in the future.
Data 1976 - 1988
This is data I collected on the 4x100 medley relay.
Data 1992 - 2004
The data table shows the men and women's gold medalist times from the 1976 to 2012 Olympic Games.
Data 2008 - 2012
So far we can observe that the men have had a faster time than the women since 1976.
In the image above we can see that the women's time intersects with the men's time. This means that the women's time will get faster and faster and will eventually beat the men's time by the year 2592 and will keep getting faster as time progresses.
