Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps Almost Identical Underwater

People love to make the distinction between male and female athletes, but what happens when you see only their accolades side by side and tell them to guess who is who?

They might just struggle.

We put 8 strangers in a room, no names attached and ask them to guess which resume belongs to which athlete. This is the Blind Resume Experiment.

On paper, male and female athletes can bear a striking resemblance. On this episode we took two of the greatest swimmers of all time and put them head to head. In episode 3, we compare world class Olympians Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps.

This experiment further proves that women belong in sport, dominate sport, and perform sport at the highest level, time and time again.
