Track and Field

How long will athletes keep beating world records? Is there a physical limit to human performance? We start to wonder when looking at the infographic designed by LargeNetwork and onlab for the June 2012 issue of the scientific magazine, Reflex.

On a two-page spread, the graphic designers present a chart of the records in the 100-metre dash since 1900. Additional graphics show data on the marathon, high jump and pole vault. 

This outstanding infographic was a finalist in the 2013 Information is Beautiful Awards.
