Team GB’s Olympic swimming team increasingly relies on Intel® Xeon® Edge processing and Intel® Xeon® Mobile Workstations to deliver a world-beating, data-led approach to training. The forensic attention to small performance details hidden within gigabytes of training performance data can contribute directly to improved competitiveness at a global level.
British Swimming is the national governing body for Swimming, Diving, Synchronized Swimming, Water Polo, and Open Water Swimming in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The organization is responsible for the high-performance representation of the sport in all elite worldwide events such as the Olympics and the Swimming World Championships.
The pursuit of sporting glory is about fine margins. And in the world of elite swimming, the smallest differences in performance can win you a race or lose it. Every millisecond matters. Every stroke. Every turn. It’s why British Swimming uses a data-led coaching strategy, tracking and analyzing the technique of each swimmer from the starting block to the finish wall.
Using insights derived from this data, British Swimming seeks to enable its athletes to achieve gold medal success at future sporting events, including the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. However, there are multiple challenges to be overcome. So, a key component of Team GB’s future success relies on maintaining a technological edge, particularly in processing and managing performance data more efficiently.
