Smog masks

Juliet Macur has an interesting article at the Times about newly designed smog masks for American Olympians in Beijing.

I'd been wondering about that for this Olympics, actually, given how bad the Beijing air is said to be. I know from running in London--whose air, while bad, is presumably nothing like Beijing--that it makes a real difference; hell, there are days in Chicago in August when I can feel the low air quality sapping my strength.

A mask would sure take some getting used to, though.
