Summary Using microphotography to explore the hidden world inside the human body, this program covers three incredible team efforts: the coordination of muscles, bones, heart and circulatory system that makes Mike Powell the world's greatest long jumper; the digestive dynamo that turns a simple sandwich eaten by five-time Olympic gold medalist Bonnie Blair into raw energy for a blistering sprint down the ice; and the ultimate event--the development of a new human life inside track star Karen Hatchett.
Contents Prologue -- Introduction -- A man who can fly: bones and muscles -- A woman of speed: nutrition and digestion -- Preparing for the big event: pregnancy.
