With reference to the last post about air quality, here’s a link to an interesting piece in Slate that explains how the pollution might not only cause events to be delayed as the IOC has repeatedly warned and affect athletes’ health, it could also impact their performance, something that had never occurred to me before. That explains why I can’t seem to get under the four minute mark when I do my mile circuits in Ritan Park. :)
