Nobody has tested a model yet. When they do we hope the thing sinks. It may be a lost cause, but we're with the old boys.
SINKING FEELING II
Dr. Jack H. Wilmore of the University of California at Davis offers the following for our summertime mulling: in the 1924 Olympics the winning time for the men's 400-meter freestyle was 16% faster than that of the women's 400. By 1948 the difference was down to 11.6%, by 1972 7.3%. Should women continue to close the gap at the same rate, they will be outswimming men at 400 meters by 2012.
