Athlete Strapping Tape At Olympics

What's with the some of the Athletes at the Olympics wearing strapping tape in weird spots?
Just watching the Handball on SBS and one of the Croatian dudes has some over his calf.
Is it new technology? Muscle warming or something??
I have no idea as you can see...

i have been wondering this the whole games as well. People were wearing a single strip of tape down the length of their arm or leg, how does that offer any support?

alot of people that have had bad injurys or have been wearing it for a long time. usually wear a light strap for a mental reason and not a physical reason. we have a lot of guys at footy that strap there knees or ankle very lightly to give them confidents.
