The August Issue is all about the Olympics. Our man on the ground in Rio gives us his unique take on this controversial games. We interview Team GB BMX Star Liam Phillips, and members of the incredibly inspiring first-ever Refugee Team.
We try as many Olympic sports in a week as we can. And speak to Chris Boardman, the Olympian who changed British Cycling forever, inspiring the subsequent medal hauls but more importantly kickstarting a cycling revolution that’s seen more people riding bikes on British streets than any of us had ever dared dream of.
Finally, as scientific mapping of the human genome grows apace, we look into the genes linked to sporting talent and ask what the future has in store for wannabe Olympians.
