It’s still the Rio 2016 Olympics and we’ve got more sports science for you.

We find out how an athlete gets ready for a big event with Shona Hendricks from the HPC Sports Science & Medical Unit at TUKS High Performance Center in Pretoria.

Your genetics could be to blame for why you can’t run like Usain Bolt. We speak to Professor Malcolm Collins, from the Department of Human Biology at the University of Cape Town, with a specific focus on the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine.

Grant van Velden at the Centre for Human Performance Sciences at Stellenbosch University tells us about the technology that can help athletes get better.

The Science Inside team is Elna Schütz and DJ Keyez.
