The best example is aerodynamic head guard in cycling. It is found that every cyclist has to conquer wind resistance. Common bicycles have very poor aerodynamics. Sports ball aerodynamics is related with lateral deflection in flight which is known as swing, swerve or curve. It is well known in basketball, golf, tennis, cricket, volleyball and soccer. In these games the deflection is produced by spinning the ball about an axis perpendicular to the line of flight which generates with Magnus effect that makes the ball curve faster towards the ground than it would under the action of gravity alone.
