Dassault Systèmes (DS) the leading provider of software solutions allowing users to create, share and experience in 3D, affirms its commitment to the athletic arena with its “Virtual Plus Reality Challenge”, a new technological experience:

- A technologically advanced mini-website based on the latest 3D solutions allowing the general public to watch the Paris-Beijing race run by renowned marathon runner Philippe Fuchs in real-time
- A global premiere for science and sports with the Marseille Motion Science Institute using Philippe Fuchs' biomechanical data to model his stride
- A charity event in partnership with Sports Without Borders allowing the general public to join the marathon through an innovative Facebook application
- Following its March 7 launch, the “Virtual Plus Reality Challenge” will continue through to Fuchs' arrival in Beijing during the Summer Olympic Games.

Known for its 3D solutions helping companies to design, produce and recycle products ranging from airplanes to shampoo bottles, Dassault Systèmes' 3D solutions are also being used to create innovative and high-performing sports applications, from stadiums to bicycles to running shoes.

For example, leading sports apparel companies like Under Armour push the limits with Dassault Systèmes' solutions to launch new innovative products.

The “Virtual Plus Reality Challenge” goes one step further, with 3D sports applications for the general public, a partnership with Sports Without Borders and a cutting-edge study combining sports and science.

A chance to experience Philippe Fuchs' race in 3D on Dassault Systèmes' mini-website Fuchs supporters will be only a click away from the runner's latest progress.
