Certainly some interesting comments but I was particularly interested by this one:
France's sprint coach, former Olympic gold medallist Laurent Gané, has told reporters here in French: "The recipe should be asked for from our neighbours because I don't understand. I don't know what they're doing. I'd love to know. These are teams that do nothing extraordinary for four years and once they arrive at the Olympics they out-class the rest of the world."

It does seem somewhat amazing that the marginal gains are only evident at the Olympics. I do wonder sometimes, which is a pity really.


Here's what the press are being told, it's not about shaving your legs: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/ ... ore-medals
