In the framework of this year’s Cambridge Science Festival – the UK’s biggest free science festival – Professor John Barrow will cast a mathematical eye over a wide range of Olympic sporting events. What is going on mathematically in a range of running, swimming, jumping, throwing, paddling, lifting, swinging and wheelchair racing events? Barrow will also examine some of the strange scoring systems that sports employ.

Festival runs from March 12-25 at venues across the University and City.
Barrow will speak on Monday, 12 March (6:00PM – 7:00PM).
