Sports Performance & Tech, Issue 2

Where we look at how the London 2012 Olympics utilized analytics


Welcome to the second edition of Sports Performance & Technology.

The reaction to the first issue was incredible and we would like to thank everybody who shared, commented and gave us feedback. We hope that you enjoy the second issue just as much.

In this issue we discuss the ways in which sports analytics are changing the lives of young footballers and entire communities in Sierra Leone, avoiding athlete burnout and a review of the Garmin Edge 810, amongst many others.

One of the interesting things that I found whilst putting this magazine together is the continued interest from the sporting community, not a day has gone by where I haven't had at least 2 emails from people saying that they have had the link sent to them and how they are interested in getting involved.

It is good to know that so many people have been sharing the magazine around and that there are people out there with a genuine passion for what we are trying to achieve.

We are hoping to expand Sports Performance & Technology to cover as many areas as possible, in this issue we are looking at sports ranging from cycling to ice hockey. If you know of any innovative or obscure sports that are using new techniques, let us know, it would be great to include them in the next edition.

If you are interested in getting involved in the magazine from a sponsorship, writer or any other perspective please contact me at to discuss how we can work together.
