Olympic Science 101: Physics & Physiology Behind the Games

It is inevitable that we get many articles on the physics or the science of sports during the Olympics. I had already highlighted one such article from this month's issue of Physics Today on the Speedo swimsuit that many swimmers are using nowadays. Now comes a rather lengthy article from Popular Mechanics on the science behind various events at the Olympics. There's quite a bit to read here since they covered the mechanics of various disciplines.
