Weekend Wrap-up: More Olympics? Maybe.

Can I write about the Olympics everyday? I’m going to try.

What affect does technology have on athletic performance? In some sports not much, in others, much more. Any sport that relies heavily on speed such as cycling and rowing will benefit from lighter, more aerodynamic equipment/clothing. Track athletes have seen improvement in the track surface along with the shoes.

What sports are decided on physical prowess alone? Wrestling, judo/martial arts, gymnastics, weightlifting, field sports, and distance running come to mind. Distance runners to rely on shoes but since they are running on unprepared surfaces over a long time, I’ll include them here (plus, I’ve done a few marathons).

Let me know your thoughts.
