Chemistry in the Olympics

It’s fewer than 100 days to the London Summer Olympics 2012!

Watch this video: Alistair Brownlee, the world champion triathlete, discusses his chemistry education and how it places an important role in sport.

There you go! There is so much chemistry that goes into sports, from the material composites used to make the lightest and strongest bikes to the exothermic reactions that take place at the shooting range. How can we not agree with Alistair that knowing the chemistry behind his sport enhances his sporting excellence?

All the best to the athletes! You exemplify the human tenacity, resilience and pursuit for greater heights!
