ABC Background Briefing Podcast - Sports Wars

Here is a link to ABC's (no, not that one, Australian Broadcasting Corp...) Background Briefing podcast for 16 March 2008, Sports Wars, giving a reasonably in-depth discussion on what the Australian Institute of Sport is doing to help Australians win more medals this summer in Beijing.

One of the primary examples used is Cadel Evans and how they are training for the Olympic TT. Including use of core temperature pills (pills that log core body temperature as they pass through the gut), SRM, tilt sensors, video, virtual environment (like "flight simulator"), heat tents, etc.

A transcript is also available.
