Can you see it? Sport’s use of science to win

Abstract:
Dr TIM GABRIEL of Huddersfield University asks whether the use of nanotechnology could help bring sporting glory to UK sportsmen and women

IS our nation's sport is in crisis? England's failure to reach Euro 2008, a sorry representation at Wimbledon year after year and with drugs dope Dwain Chambers in the midst of scandal - winning may only be possible using performance enhancing drugs.

If more and more competitors receive penalties for doping, will people now turn to the use of science and technology?

And at what point do we consider whether or not the sports equipment that athletes use provides an unfair advantage over the competition?

Will Beijing Olympics' gold medal winners have used the latest in footwear technology or the forthcoming winners of the PGA golf tournaments have had their driving distances improved by new materials incorporated into their golf clubs?

Will we reach a point where science and technology plays a critical part in deciding between first and second place?
