Darcy Norman, a performance data analyst with the German national team, spoke today at the Consumer Electronics Show and described how he's helped the squad improve its decision-making with Adidas' micoach wearable technology and software.
Leading up to last year's World Cup, the German team wore small devices during practice to monitor everything from speed, distance, and heart rate of each player. Norman and his colleagues would crunch the data after training sessions and see how exactly each athlete performed. Coaches then used the information to plan future workouts more effectively and make better personnel decisions.
Le strade, le ruote, i sentieri, i pedali, le corse, la pista, il sudore, l'agonia, il tifo, l'euforia, il trionfo. Il ciclismo.
