What we are doing

Our goal is to help British Athletics win more medals in more events at major championships. We will achieve this by providing unique insights that enable athletes and coaches to make better decisions that give them a competitive advantage.

For example, we've developed a unified data platform that brings together historic and current datasets into one place. This ranges from health statistics to strength diagnostics, training and performance. It makes sophisticated data analysis and reporting simple and user-friendly, so athletes can focus on using those insights to improve their training and performance.

We're also collaborating with British Athletics to develop new ideas and opportunities using data intelligence. Alongside finding correlations between previously disconnected data sets that give an edge in training and recovery, we've developed an innovative way of doing biomechanical analysis using machine learning and computer vision.

This partnership marks a major leap forward in the way British Athletics uses data. We're extremely proud to be helping athletes and coaches achieve their goals.
