Sportdata & Performance Forum

Sportdata & Performance Forum

The successful Sportdata & Performance Forum event series delves into the exciting world of data analytics and how it applies to high performance sport. From predictive insight into sporting performance, machine learning, sports biometrics, data from wearable technologies and how data can enable effective player recruitment, training and assist with injury prevention, big data is having a massive impact in the sporting domain.

Elite athletes and teams nowadays, have the ability to collect a vast amount of data surrounding, but the challenge is unlocking the insights buried in that data and making it more actionable.

“One of the most significant developments in technology has been data. The speed at which data can be converted into athletic training is incredible, and what used to require several hours in a lab can be taken in the velodrome as you train. For me, harnessing instant and accurate data couldn’t have gone better. It helped me get in tune with my body and performance to get everything right on race day, and it helped me walk out of Rio2016 with three Paralympic medals.”

Steve Bate, Great Britain Paralympic Champion at Rio 2016
