As more women work with their physiology, they are getting closer to, and in many instances passing, the men.
Recently, New York Magazine online ran a story titled, "The Obscure Ultra-Endurance Sport Woman Are Quietly Dominating." The big reveal? That in the sport of ultra-endurance swimming, women were quite simply schooling the men. Most notably, the article cited a Swiss study published in 2015 that revealed that in the 87-year span between 1927 and 2014, the fastest women were an average of 52.9 minutes faster than the fastest men. What's more, when they looked at average times across open water swimmers in general, the average woman is faster than the average man.
