What value a second

Postby find_bruce » Sat Dec 07, 2013 9:00 pm

When Anna Meares was 20 years old she rode the 500m time trial in just under 34 seconds. 10 years & a lot of hard work later, she has lowered her time by just 1 second, to just under 33 seconds.

Of course it helps that her time in 04 won her gold in the olympics and was a world record & 10 years later she has set yet another world record, winning a world cup round.

I should have added that Meares world record time from 2004 would now only be good enough for 9th.
