A Symphony Of Split-Second Olympic Results

Canada's Christine Nesbitt won gold in Women's Speed Skating 1000m in Vancouver by just 0.02 seconds. Such a close margin is difficult to really understand -- after all, it's roughly the same amount of time it takes a hummingbird to flap its wings. Fortunately, the New York Times has attempted to put it in better perspective by setting it to music -- you can actually listen to the differences between 0.02 seconds, or 1.36 seconds, the amount of time that separated the top-10 finishers in Men's Alpine Skiing Super-G
