As the curtains have closed on the XXII Olympic winter games, we take a look back at the many milestones achieved throughout the last 90 years of these games. On this day in particular (in 1988), Bonnie Blair set the world record for 500m speed skating in a record 39.1 seconds. Since that time, the record broke many times and the speed continues to astound spectators. Like speed skating, technology continues to evolve at a speed that is sometimes hard to believe. At the time of that big skate in ’88, think of where we were with technology: the Netherlands just became the second country to get connected to the Internet. How far we’ve come!
