Sports are good for your health. However, high-performance sportsmen often push their bodies to the limit. How can research help them?

This is a presentation in full-duplex mode by the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris and the musée des Confluences in Lyon.
In order to promote dialogue between science and society, since 2012, Inserm and Universcience have been offering the lecture series “Health through questions”.
