0

PARIS: Many elite athletes who competed at the 2012 Olympic Games had levels of oral health similar to those of poverty-stricken communities, a study said on Monday. Researchers at University College London examined the teeth and gums of 302 athletes who visited a dental clinic at the London 2012 Olympic Village. The athletes took part in 25 different sports. About a third of them competed in track and field, 14 percent in boxing; 11 percent in hockey and eight percent in swimming. Most of the athletes were from Africa, the Americas and Europe.
