Although some athletes may be tempted to bend the laws of sport in the quest for medal success, they can never break the laws of physics. Physics can provide remarkable insights into the world of sport, explaining the phenomenal and revealing where the ultimate limits of human athletic performance may lie. This lecture will explore many of the key technologies that have allowed athletes to push the boundaries of human performance and will ask where the future might take us? Has science gone too far in the quest for sporting success?
