Real sport in a simulated environment:
Virtual worlds of sport
It is especially tempting to try out some of the more unusual sporting disciplines. But who has easy access to a ski jumping hill? Powerful computers and computer technology simulate the training environment to provide virtual worlds of sport, rendering the user independent of meteorological conditions and sporting venues alike. Test your marksmanship at the shooting range of the biathlon simulator. Then get your pulse racing on the cross-trainer and see whether your hand is still as steady afterwards as it was during your first attempt. Perform the perfect drive on the golf simulator and follow the path of the ball to the hole on the screen. Or go downhill skiing with the help of a Wii games console!
