Re: How do you win?
Exactly: analysis is key. If everyone has the bodies and the training down pat, then it's a matter of being the smarter, more efficient, and more effective player.

A Great New Use

It wasn't so long ago that techniques such as these were only available for the most esoteric design projects, and now they will be available to make elite athletes even better. We can expect a new round of word records, this time not due to steroids, as more and more sports organizations take advantage of these methods. I especially hope that through big data, a way can be found to reduce concussions in contact sports, such as football, without reducing the excitement for players and fans alike.

How do you win?
Experience and hard work are the paths to winning in any sport, but what do you do when everybody is extremely talented, well-coached, the best of the best? You take performance-enhancing drugs. No, I'm kidding. You throw money at the problem and buy the best players. Kidding again (though that's worth doing if you have the cash). You ANALYZE THE DATA to find insights hidden to the naked eye and use them to your advantage.
