The Rewind Recommends: The Science Of Sport Podcast

Ever wondered exactly how Nike's Vaporfly shoes are changing marathon running, what PED's sportspeople are taking to lift them to podium level or what other methods athletes are using to cheat and get away with it?

If that's a yes, then you should be listening to the Science of Sport podcast.

The podcast launched earlier this year and features South African duo Professor Ross Tucker and Mike Finch. New episodes are released weekly.

Tucker is a world renowned sports scientist with insightful views on sports ranging from athletics and cycling to soccer and rugby. Host Finch is a journalist and an excellent foil who can mine information from Tucker.

The science is not dumbed down but it's also accessible and easily consumed.


October's episodes covered Alberto Salazar being banned for doping violations, how Eliud Kipchoge ran a sub-two hour marathon, Nike's Vaporfly shoes and how rugby is leading the way for player safety in contact sports.

You can find the podcast here.
