cooling inside the body to cope with Beijing heat

Aussie secret weapon@AOC

Slush puppy, freezy, slurpee – call them what you like, but they are the fastest heat reducing product available. Scientifically proven by the Aussie team’s medical staff, the slurpees reduce the core body temperature faster than ice vests and cold towels.

Depending on the temperature of the day and athlete, the slurpees will be ingested before, during and after competition.

The athletes won’t taste the traditional raspberry and cola flavours, but rather those like berry ice and mountain blast of Powerade.

The key to brain freeze is putting your tongue to the roof of your mouth.
