The competitiveness of today’s athletes has been increasing rapidly by the day, and the results in the field are an excellent testimony to the same. For example, Jesse Owens is considered to be one of the best sprinters in the history of athletics. His timing of 10.3s in the controversial Berlin Summer Olympics was a significant achievement at the time. But almost a century later, in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, of the eight finalists, six athletes finished the race in under 10s. This is because athletes today have recognized the advantages that technology can provide them and have started leveraging technological innovations such as AI, data analytics, IoT, and more in their training regime as well to increase their competence.
With all the technological advancements, data is available in plenty in the form of videos, statistics, and so on. By leveraging big data analytics, AI, and more, athletes analyze this data to come up with strategic plans that can provide a competitive edge that all athletes are continually striving for. Additionally, by incorporating wearable technology, the athlete can understand his fitness and use this data to come up with proper fitness regimes that would not only increase their fitness levels but would also prolong their career.
To tap into these opportunities, a number of solution providers have come up with innovative solutions that help both athletes and teams to sharpen their competence.
