< Londonolympic Park South last 24 hours Issued at:

22-23 July - Will new world records be set during the return of athletics to the London 2012 Olympic Stadium? Check the weather forecast for the London Olympic Park.

The weather can greatly affect the results of athletic events.

For example, some athletes prefer to train in warmer climates and/or at higher altitudes as exposure to these conditions over time can help improve their performance at athletic events.

Different weather conditions also influence the results of athletic events. For sprint events, air resistance plays a major part in an athlete's performance - wind speed can either help or hinder athletes, depending on its direction. For this reason, the results of any races that take place with a tailwind of more than two metres per second are not eligible for world records.

Temperatures affect middle distance runners more than sprinters. Middle distance running events that take place in warmer conditions have the greatest impact on athletes as their muscles tire at a much faster rate; which is why athletes can benefit from training in warmer climates. In contrast, cooler temperatures mean that muscles take much longer to warm up and affect an athlete's performance in different ways.
