Crawling 80 Years Apart – Olympics Los Angeles 1932 and London 2012

Swimming

One of the most prestigious Olympic sport disciplines is swimming, with 100m freestyle taking one of the top positions.

The video below was taken 80 years apart, but the difference is quite astonishing as the winner’s end times differ for 10.68 seconds.

In Los Angeles Olympics 1932 the winner was Yasuji MIYAZAKI from Japan with the time 58.2, silver went to another Japanese, Tatsugo KAWAISHI, his time was 58.6 and bronze went to the United States of America and the swimmer Albert SCHWARTZ stopwatch showed 58.8 .

We fast forward 80 years to the 2012 London Olympics where Nathan ADRIAN from the USA set a winning time of 47.52, to beat James MAGNUSSEN from Australia, with the time of 47.53 and bronze medal went to Brent HAYDEN from Canada with the time of 47.80.

What do you think is the cause of such tremendous changes in their times of more than 10 seconds?
