I'm going to be chauvenistic and question how the women appear to be better at the discus than men.

I always thought the men's 100m would be more spread out. Flo-Jo? come on, you're all thinking the same thing. As for the field events dropping. That's drug testing for you.

Mark Spitz won 7 gold medals at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. Since then, every one of his records has been broken...by high school athletes.

The discus probably doubled because, either they throw a different discus, or they used advances in physics to figure out how to throw it most efficiently.

Sam Mussabini: Eric Liddell? He's no real problem...

Harold M. Abrahams: [Eric has already beaten Harold once] You could have fooled me.

Sam Mussabini: Yeah, he's fast! But he won't go any faster. He's a gut runner, digs deep! But a short sprint is run on nerves. It's tailor-made for neurotics.

Do yourself a favour and watch or re-watch "Chariots of Fire". One of my favourite movies of all time... And a great score by Vangelis. "I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure." Eric Liddell

I don't see how the mens discus record could have been more than doubled

The swimming results are rerally of. im gonna go ahead and say it was because of this.

1928 Olympic Swimmer

2012 Olympic Swimmer

Also the training and methods that are used today are way better and produce a better athlete then 100 years ago.

I would be willing to bet that athletes way back when were better. They didn't have any of the science and technology to help advance them.

Did you know that Michael Phelps sleeps in a chamber that makes the air thinner as though he's 10,000 feet high? That's the difference.
