The Technology in Sport infographic wonders if our technological advancements are progress or cheating.
Science has made strides in every sport. The Speedo LZR Racer, for instance, is a swimming suit that's made from hydrophobic polyuerenthane material, utilizes NASA Fluid Dynamics expertise and is said to increase buoyancy and compression. In 2009, 93 world records were broken while wearing the suit, leading the FINA to ban its use the following year.
The Speedo LZR Racer is one innovation included in the Technology in Sport infographic, which also covers running (the Nike Pro Turbospeed Suit) and cycling (the Giro Rosa). The infographic considers what we, as athletes, want to gain from sport and sports contests, settling on: equality of contest, demonstration of skill and exciting spectacle as the main components.
