The Connected Athlete: The Role Data Science Plays In Improving Athlete Performance


The world of sport has always been a numbers game. In the past, coaches and trainers tracked everything manually, filling journals with the number of sit-ups a player did in a workout and how many touches he had on the ball during a game. Today, technology has automated much of that work. Thanks to recent advances, strength and conditioning professionals have access to a new wave of performance and movement tracking data that could never be generated or captured before. Information on everything from how quickly players move around the eld to how well they sleep at night can now be tracked, measured, and quantified. The sheer volume and variety of information available today makes it easier for data science investments to extract insights and help athletes and teams perform better and stay healthy.
