Competitive sporting activities have played an important role in human evolution and cultural development. From the ancient Olympic Games in Athens to the modern version taking place this year in London, athletes have consistently striven to compete with, and ultimately defeat, competitors for fame, glory and self-satisfaction. Today, professional sport is a multi-billion pound industry, and consequently the stakes for sports men and women are incredibly high.

Join three scientists working on the genetics, neuroscience and psychology behind sporting success. The speakers will offer an insight into each of these areas before discussing the overall contribution of science to a deeper understanding of sporting performance.

The event is free and open to all. For more information and to reserve your place, please go to
