Talk description: With every year we see new world records fall. It seems that humans are continually getting faster and stronger, but is that really the case? We hear a lot about the advances in sport psychology, nutrition, and training methods, but we never really hear about the real secret weapon, materials science! In this presentation, R-TECH Materials director of materials testing Dr Geraint Havard, will delve into the incredible advances in materials science that have had a surprising impact on elite athletic performance and will ask was Usain Bolt really the fastest man of all time?
