What do top-level sports and technology have to do with each other? Everything! Top-level sport is extremely demanding, and not just in physical terms. In order to keep on improving their performances, top-level athletes need to look beyond just their physical capacities; they need to think about clothing and equipment, materials and design. Can it be made faster, higher, with less drag? These are just the kind of questions TU Delft can provide answers to.
