Thanks for the writeup. Sports medicine is an interesting aspect of the ever-increasing number of ways we can protect our bodies from the effects of internal and external stresses, and the Olympics are a great lens!

KnowledgeWorks Foundation looks at the future of education, and one of the major trends for the next ten years is mind and body alteration, both to increase performance and because of the effects of environment. Would love to hear your thoughts!
