Science of the Summer Olympics: The Biomechanics of Usain Bolt
The Biomechanics of Usain Bolt: Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt holds the World and Olympic records for the fastest time in the 100-meter sprint. Bolt's stride, strength, and muscle coordination make him not just a biomechanical marvel, but also a gold medal favorite at the 2012 Summer Olympics. "Science of the Summer Olympics" is a 10-part video series produced in partnership with the National Science Foundation.
