The Sport Scientists

I found this article, and I absolutely love it. It pretty much talks about exactly what I want to do with my life, and that’s sport science. The weird step child of sport and data, the sport scientist is a newly minted profession due to Moneyball, a book we now should recognize due to the fact it is mentioned in every article about the topic.

This article does a great job at going in depth into some of the specifics of the research done by Joachim Gudmunsson and Michael Horton in Australia.

I highly recommend giving it a read.
