I was in track and I heard it discussed that girls tend to slow down essentially the more they mature into puberty. The appearance of child bearing hips and slightly more body fat being the culprits I guess.
In track, I'd say men, but the interesting article PetersSmith shared does show that women on average have superior long term endurance in running, which makes them better marathon runners. For general purposes if they are both in top conditioning I think the evidence favors men being faster.
@ClashnBoom PetersSmith's profile pretty bluntly states her belief in "a society where women's positions are better than men's", so I don't think she'll deny being sexist. Oh, and if you're there check our her adorable animal pictures.
@Huntress. Lol. Man basically built this world. Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, the Wright brothers etc. Without even looking at her profile I can guess that she rarely debates and is bi or lesbian.
Guys you cannot judge all the women or all the men by just giving example of a single person that if she is a good runner then women are faster than men.
Yes,I do agree with that,women do have more endurance than men.There are many things in which women are better than men.But If you consider on an average the potential(in terms of doing work)then men possess it more than women do.
@ClashnBoom Your profile states you're a Christian, so you might appreciate that the apocrypha has Zerubbabel (1 Esdras 3) saying, "Is not the king great in his power? Do not all regions fear to touch him? Yet did I see him and Apame the king's concubine, the daughter of the admirable Bartacus, sitting at the right hand of the king, And taking the crown from the king's head, and setting it upon her own head; she also struck the king with her left hand. And yet for all this the king gaped and gazed upon her with open mouth: if she laughed upon him, he laughed also: but if she took any displeasure at him, the king was fain to flatter, that she might be reconciled to him again. O ye men, how can it be but women should be strong, seeing they do thus?"
