British Olympians Use Red Contact Lenses to Beat Beijing Smog

The British women's hockey team are wearing red contact lenses to train for the Olympics because of the smog in China.

Goalkeeper Beth Storry and her team-mates were affected by hazy conditions as they played on the island of Macau, near Hong Kong which, like Beijing, is blanketed in pollution. The lenses help focus in the smog.
