MADELEINE BRAND, host:
OK. Let's talk now about science and the Olympics. There's been a lot of talk about how that pool has been engineered to break records.
ALEX CHADWICK, host:
And the swimsuits and then there are the athletes' physiques. Can you succeed in swimming if you don't have a body like Michale Phelps?
BRAND: Or in gymnastics if you are not small, really small in the case of the Chinese women's team?
CHADWICK: I know you have a lot of skepticism about the ages of these Chinese gymnasts. We have a lot of questions, and we think you, listeners, must, too. So if you have a science or a medical question about the Olympics, email us.
BRAND: Go to npr.org. Click on the contact us link. Put Olympics in the subject line, and we'll get an expert in here to answer your questions on the air. I do have a question, maybe not a science question. Why is there so much women's beach volleyball on TV, Alex?
CHADWICK: Georgia plays Russia today. We'll be back to you on that. Well, I'm certainly going to watch that.
(Soundbite of laughing)
BRAND: Right. Stay tuned. NPR's Day to Day continues.
