To mark the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Pursuit of Faster data visualisation project explores the evolution of male and female medal winning performances across all Olympic Games since 1896. It portrays the patterns of improvements in the results of time-based events where speed is the measure of success, whether it be on foot, in water or on water.
