In the high-stakes, big-bucks world of sports, every advantage is sought, every edge explored. And increasingly, athletes turn to technology to increase their ability. Nutritionists dictate diets that optimize performance. Biomechanists examine every movement of athletes looking for ways to make them faster or stronger. And sports psychologists seek to unlock the power of the mind to drive the body to ever-greater heights.
THE SCIENCE OF SPORTS is a unique look at the meeting of two worlds. Go inside Colorado's Olympic Training Center to meet the athletes who are preparing for gold and the scientists and psychologists who are helping them.
See the latest advances in training and techniques, and Michael Jordan joins host Bill Kurtis as they measure the effect of the latest discoveries.
As a special bonus, THE SCIENCE OF SPORTS also features ROCK AND ROLL PHYSICS, a portrait of two innovative high school teachers who have found awesome new ways to introduce their students to the wonders of science. Explore their amusement park of a lab, where discovery, knowledge and fun converge. It will make you wish you were back in school!
