human_ambition This is four "AP Athletes of the Year". Down Right [1943] Swede Gunder Hägg who set over a dozen World Records from 1500 to 5000. The first non-american to win the prize. His 1500 was 3:43 and his 5k 13:58. That record lasted for twelve years. Up right: Don Schollander [1964] winning four olympic golds in Tokyo. Up left: Mark Spitz [1972] with his then record breaking seven olympic gold medals and Down left Michael Phelps [2008+2012] with a total of 22 olympic medals this far.

canereler "Rekorlar kırılmak içindir." Mark Spitz. 1972 Münih Olimpiyat Oyunları'nda 7 dalda 7 dünya rekoru ile 7 altın madalya alarak rekorları parçalamıştı. Michael Phelps 2008 Beijing'de 8 altın ile bu ulaşılmaz denen rekoru kırmış ve tarihi değiştirmişti. Phelps bu sayede tarihin en büyük yüzücüsü kabul ediliyor. Fakat Spitz yüzmenin o dönemde sınıf atlamasını sağlamıştı. Öyle bir ikonmuş ki, 72'de bir Rus gazeteci niye bıyıklarını kesmediğini sorduğunda, ( yüzücülerin bilhassa o dönem yüzünde dahi hiç tüy bırakmadığı bilinir) Spitz "bıyık sayesinde su ağzıma gelmiyor yandan akıyor ve daha akıcı, süratli yüzüyorum" deyince, ertesi yıl tüm erkek Sovyet yüzücüler bıyık bırakmış. Bıyıklarıyla da devrim yaratmış zamanında. Efsaneye saygılarla... Socrates Dergi Temmuz sayısından... #socratesdergi #socrates #4 #markspitz #kazan2015 #swimming İllüstrasyon: @huseyinsandik 4w
