There is an expectation that at each Olympic Games, and at other international events, new record performances will be achieved. This article describes some of the research that has been done to consider whether (as a result of human endeavour alone), records will always continue to be broken or whether there are limits to the shortest achievable times in running and swimming, or the greatest achievable heights or distances in jumping events. (Contains 1 box and 1 figure.)
