Test Tubes Super Jocks

Scientists have been brewing up recipes to help athletes do better in sports since the days of the caveman. Back then, caveman scientists told hunters to eat lots of camel fat if they wanted a better chance of hunting down a woolly mammoth.

Since then, athletes and sports stars have come up with all sorts of recipes to run faster, jump higher or hit the ball harder. These potions include bee pollen, power bars, Wonder Bread, crazy hormones and even cells from other people. Some of these mixes have led to gold medals and world records - while others have led to nothing more than damaged brain cells and bad acne. Sports scientists have created the weird, the dangerous and the just plain freaky.

Surf on through the Sports Lab - and discover some of the concoctions athletes are taking to get their game to the next level. You'll find out about the dangers of steroids and why athletes take them, the latest on test tube Super Jocks and what a Japanese runner snacked on to make it first across the finish line.
