Sports Biomechanics
I often hear that humans are poor athletes; that ants can carry ten times their own weight, cheetahs can run at over 100 kilometres an hour, fleas can jump hundreds of times their own height, whales can migrate thousands of kilometres with little apparent rest but humans are really good at … nothing. This has always amazed me, because while other animal species might have one or two incredible physical abilities, humans seem to be able to do just about everything.

Some humans can lift 260 kg overhead, some can run at over 40 km per hour, some can run for days with little rest, some can swim long stretches of water, some can dive to depths of hundreds of metres on a single breath of air and some can jump over a bar that I can barely touch on my tiptoes!
We are the all-rounders of the animal world. We also have a competitive spirit (not unique to humans) that makes us want to run faster, go further, lift more and jump higher, so we are always trying to work out a better way to perform incredible feats. Athletes who are trying to beat the world train for hours a day but unfortunately, even with advances in training methods, we don’t seem to have come very far in many aspects of our physical ability. Physiologically, today’s athletes can use about the same amount of oxygen in their muscles as they did forty years ago. They aren’t better able to tolerate high levels of intense work; they don’t breathe more rapidly nor do their hearts beat more quickly. Psychologically, you’d be hard-pushed to show that athletes of many years ago weren’t able to compose themselves when stressed, motivate themselves for a big effort or rouse their team mates for one final push, although perhaps more athletes have the skills to do these things nowadays. So how have we been able to beat world records?
