Top Read

How would Usain Bolt vs. 1896 100m Gold Medalist run would look? Slate does a great visualization of ranking top athletes’ performance-on-a-page. Best thing about the visual is time axis is missing, giving it a clean one-dimensional look.

Big Data

Soccer’s Big Data Revolution

Starting next year, every MLS soccer kit will be fitted with a small chip from Adidas. Located between a player’s shoulder blades, the chip will transmit 200 data records a second from the player to a local information system. From there onward, the data can be transmitted to the coaches’ laptops or tablets to provide clear overviews of the physical and physiological situations of the players on the pitch. It is not far-fetched to imagine coaches viewing a Football Manager game-like interface which showcases individual players’ level of fatigue, concentration, etcetera, varying in real time.
