Nano-sized ingredients are now making a big impact in sport. When added to materials such as carbon fibre, they create lighter, stronger composite materials.
Tennis and golf are leading the way, with nano-composite-enhanced rackets and clubs. And last year, nanotechnology made it onto the winner's podium. Roger Federer won Wimbledon using a racket reinforced with nano-sized
silicon-dioxide crystals incorporated into the frame.
