Ros Lamb, 400,000 metre gold medalist

This is athlete Ros Lamb, 400,000 metre gold medalist. Her achievements on the track make all Britons proud.

But there's more to her success story than just running and running and running. A lot more. Really, a heck of a lot more.

Ros uses the latest 'scienthletic' know-how as part of her training regime and this has led to her achieving speeds previously thought impossible.

With the aid of a state of the art 'racing-fuel' called Di-Tutetamine Brohohibe, Ros is able to reach speeds of up to 3,500 mph, about the speed of 40,000 protons flying back to back. This is just one of hundreds of examples of how sport has been made more interesting through the application of Science.
