This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Tom and Mitch back at the Olympics as they use it as a springboard to explore strange science! Hopefully this time the boys can stay a bit more on track… okay enough with the puns. Tom created a random event generator to create Imgur’s crazy triathlon, see what events are pulled to make a super triathlon and which animals the boys think would be best suited! Mitch talks about how humans can jump so far in the long jump and the boys discuss how small insects such as fleas can jump 220 times their body length! Giraffes are up for gold in the hammer throw owing to their strong necks and Betta fish might be the Olympic wrestling champions, but what is happening to their genes while they fight?! Find out here!
