SAS, the Official Analytics Partner for British Rowing, was exclusively invited to a British Rowing Men’s winter training camp in Avis, Portugal in February 2019. With rEvolution’s help, SAS hosted a lucky handful of media to attend the training and see firsthand how its data analytics is an integral component in the team’s preparations for the Games.
As legendary GB Rowing Team Chief Coach Jürgen Gröbler states, “Being aware of all of our athletes’ data is fundamental to our preparations in the build-up to Tokyo 2020. Since SAS has been the Official Analytics Partner for British Rowing, we have made a huge amount of progress in not only collecting data and improving coaches’ and athletes’ access to it, but also logging retrospective data. Retrieving this data and analysing it is now happening very often, virtually daily.”
