    Control algorithms are applied to a physically realistic model of humans to compute the motion of athletes as they run,dive, vault, bicycle, lift weights, and perform on the uneven bars and rings. The Motion of the splash created by the diver and the sweat-pants worn by the runner are also dynamically simulated.
