52min or 25min English or German version Every year, athletes set new world records. But are today’s top performers really better than athletes of the past? Are sprinters faster or do they just have better shoes and tracks? Are swimmers stronger or do they just have slipperier swimsuits? Are rowers superior or is it all about the advent of carbon fiber? Such questions exist for all sports where technology has advanced and achievement is precisely measured in meters or milliseconds. What if the greatest high-performance athletes - present and past - could compete against each other on a level playing field? If competitive conditions were equalized, would today’s stars come out on top? Or would they be beaten by heroes of the past? These are tough questions to answer. THE EQUALIZER will take the challenge.
