Have you ever wondered… : 

Exercise & Sport Science | 2 Have you ever wondered… Who decides how much exercise is good for you? Who designed the skins suits that our Olympic swimmers wear? Who helps our national coaches design better training programs? Who invented the fitness test? Does Speedo’s LZR Racer swim suit really offer an advantage to swimmers?
