In the ramp up to the Rio Olympics, USA Cycling Women’s Team Pursuit is boosting riders’ performance through connected devices and wearables that generate real-time insights via IBM’s Apache Spark cloud-based data analytics.
Performance insights gained from data analytics are increasingly used as a training tool in the hyper-competitive field of top-tier sport, especially in the team pursuit format where four cyclists follow each other closely around the track. The data insights can give an advantage that decides whether a cycling team wins a medal or comes home empty handed
