Indeed some stories may already be filtering through.
Take the claims of a Cambridge Professor of Mathematical Sciences who, according to The Telegraph has highlighted a way for sprinter Usain Bolt to run even faster based, we are told, "on concrete mathematical evidence".
Sounds interesting, doesn't it? So what is this secret formula?
"Firstly, Bolt's reaction time is surprisingly poor... By responding to the gun as quickly as possible …he would shave 0.05s..."
OK, so he should be a bit quicker out of the blocks.
"Secondly, advantageous wind conditions can help athletes improve their times…"
So a strong tail wind.
"Thirdly, running at altitude reduces the air density in the wind drag calculation…"
So to recap for those who aren't as up on their mathematical sciences, Bolt could run faster if he was:
- Running with a tail wind
- Running at altitude
We await a Professor of Engineering - or possibly a spokesman from Kwik Fit - pointing out Bolt could go even faster if he used a car.
