Hindustan Times - HT Smartcast

Faster, Higher, Stronger…yes! But how do elite athletes get there? With a little help from sports science, of course. This is the golden age of athleticism. It’s no coincidence that it’s also the golden age of sports science. Rudraneil Sengupta goes behind the scenes to talk to scientists, coaches and trainers to understand how athletes run faster, jump higher, get stronger, and play longer. If you are interested in sports, muscles, speed, power, strength and agility, press play. This is a Hindustan Times production, brought to you by HT Smartcast.
