At what point do reach the pinnacle of human performance?
Every Olympics we see people break Olympic and World Records. This has been happening for years now, in several events every Olympics. Sometimes by not much, sometimes by a ton.
But when do reach the point that we saw the fast, strongest, BEST to ever compete in a particular event? When do we reach the point that in certain events do we do not break records anymore.
Sprinters can’t run faster, lifters can’t lift anymore, boarders can’t do any more flips or revolutions. Even with advances in equipment, advances in training methods and even with doping, surely we will reach a point that we can’t do any better.
Maybe that will never happen. But logically, you’d think it would have to happen. Physically as humans we can’t run 100m in 2 seconds, or lift tons over our head
Just a something I’m thinking about during these Olympics. We watch the Olympics because of the amazing feats that happen, and we can see the top of human performance, but when do we finally reach that peak?
