University to feature on 4Sport

The University is set to feature on the second edition of the new Channel 4 sports programme, 4Sport: Destination 2012 on Sunday (1 February).

As part of the series, Rhys and Eggsy, two members of the band Goldie Lookin Chain, visited the University to look into the science behind sport.

They were put through their paces in a number of tests carried out by staff from the Department of Sports Development and the School for Health.

The first of these will feature in Sunday's programme, which is being screened on Channel 4 at 8am on Sunday and again on Channel 4 +1 at 9am. The pair will be filmed taking part in a VO2 max test in the Human Performance Centre at the Sports Training Village.

This edition of the show also features five-times Olympian and University of Bath Swimming Club member Mark Foster. Having danced his way through Strictly Come Dancing, Mark is featured trying his hand at a new sport, basketball.

There will also be another opportunity to catch the show next week on Channel 4's late night sports slot on Tuesday 3 February at 01:00am or you can watch it online for 28 days after transmission (see related links).
