How to manufacture an Australian world champion

Australia's athletic prowess is on show for all at the Commonwealth Games but behind the scenes our high-tech manufacturers are kicking goals in a $300bn global market.

It’s day four of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games and already Australia has shot to the top of the pack with 26 gold medals. For a nation whose population is less than half that of England’s (which currently sits in second place with 23 gold, and well and truly trails Australia in total medals at 57 to our 73), there’s no doubt we Aussies punch considerably above our weight in terms of athletic prowess.

What is less known, however, is that Australia is also home to some of the world’s best-performing sports technology companies.
