Ashwath Nityanandan Posted 9 months ago Longevity of athletic records tells us which ones are being "manufactured" by training technology. I'm new to this so bear with me. My previous conversation was also just a statement but it generated a lot of dialogue (see "there are no facts in the future"). I am saying that the disparity in longevity of different records gives us a clue that some athletic events are driven by talent much more than others. My question is "do you agree, or have any dissenting or clarifying data or comments?"
