Sport and Technology

Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games 3 © Steve McCaskillTechnology has become increasingly important to sport over the past few years, with nearly every professional sport having at least some form of interaction with IT. Indeed, many teams and associations are turning to the field of analytics to gain an edge over their competitors.
