In sports, we call this "The doctrine of Marginal Gain"

On the scales at gym, I call it "The doctrine of Marginal Loss": 0.5 grams is a victory.


Yes, the marginal gains idea was popularised here in the UK by the coach of the British cycling team. It’s amazing to read about what he/they achieved.

Every time I hear about British Cycling team, I immediately think of Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Bradley Wiggins.

This is one of my techniques in IELTS Speaking. Associating/Linking certain topics to people or events for me to generate ideas.

Good idea Yves!
