At Rio 2016 there were over 23 Paralympic Sports and 42 Olympic Sports contested. The support teams worked with athletes, across all of these sports, to make sure that each athlete had the best chance of achieving their personal best.
In our third Get Set hangout we asked pupils from Bishop Vaughan Catholic School and Bishopston Comprehensive School to think about Sports Science and come up with some exciting questions to ask our guests. Find out how the Team GB and ParalympicsGB support teams were preparing for Rio, what a typical day involves and how many of them were going to Rio!
Check out more hangouts for more great interviews with Olympic and Paralympic athletes, Team GB and ParalympicsGB support staff and other exclusive guests!
