Nike design new track suit to improve times...
The theory behind the suit is that there are strategically placed dimples on key areas of the suit to help reduce aerodynamic drag as much as possible. The roughly follows the same principle as the dimples on a golf ball which help it to travel further.
Needless to say, this got me thinking about what would happen if you wore one for a Marathon! The result is a reduction of 9.7 seconds. Needless to say those that the savings at the slower running speeds would probably be a lot less. Food for thought though ;o)
