No doubt, extreme athletes have some of the most dangerous jobs in the world. They risk serious injury, and sometimes death, by attempting harrowing stunts and performances that leave spectators in awe. Although a lot of their talent is natural ability coupled with hard work and preparation, they could not accomplish their daring and complicated maneuvers without first mastering or controlling the forces of physics and science surrounding these tasks.
Get ready for an unforgettable look into the world of X-sports and its amazing athletes when the Festival and ZOZI introduces "The Science of Extreme Sports" next April at the Festival Expo in Washington, DC. ZOZI, the leading brand for adventure, will have sports legends from the ZOZI Guru ® team, a hand-selected group of the most highly accomplished and well-known individuals who've defined adventure! This exciting interactive panel discussion will feature three-time Ironman Triathlon champion Chris Lieto; extreme surfing champion Maya Gabeira who the Los Angeles Times dubbed the "Super Woman of Big-Wave Surfing"; and extreme skier Jonny Moseley, two-time World Cup champion and winner of the gold medal in freestyle skiing at the 1998 Olympic Games.
These and other athletes will give you uncommon behind-the-scenes insight into their sports, while you also learn about the science and physics surrounding their spectacular and often-dangerous athletic performances -- insight that includes how their extreme maneuvers are challenged or assisted by the forces of velocity, aerodynamics, friction, temperature, kinetic and rotational energy, mass, and the universal laws of motion and gravity.
Don't miss this unique experience in extreme sports and science!
