BTS and SuperQuark behind the scenes of Olympic trainings!

This summer has given sports fans countless emotions. The World Swimming Championship in Kazakhistan and the just concluded World Championships in Athletics gave us a little taste of the next Olympics of Rio de Janeiro.
BTS* has the privilege of supporting the trainings of some promising athletes of the Italian Olympic Team.
The famous italian TV programme of cultural divulgation SuperQuark, reveals what happens behind the scenes. Below you will find the subtitled video of the report and an extract of the full text.

*You can see BTS systems in Alessia Trost high jump tests at minute 5.

Here, an extract of the full text:

The new Olympics will take place in Rio de Janeiro next year and many athletes are now starting to prepare for this event. Science and Technology have now become part of trainings to improve athlete’s performances. We have visited the Institute of Sports Medicine of CONI, the heart of a 50.000 sports organizations network that select the most promising young sporting talents of the world. Here new young sporting talents and many other well-established athletes are tested. Together with trainers there are scientists, sports doctors and other experts who are essential to compete at high levels in modern sport. Their unique objective is to win. The adopted strategy is a scientific method based on measurement. Nothing is left to chance and since the Institute of Sports Medicine supervises 43 Italian sporting federations, often some ideas or remarks belonging to certain disciplines end up being useful for others. For example, here we are analyzing the high jump test with Alessia Trost, World Junior Champion and Vice European and Indoor Champion of today. Twenty-five reflective surfaces are applied on just as many key points of the body. Infrared cameras arranged around will measure the positions in the three –dimensional space. The test has begun and now the points filmed by these special cameras are turned into a 3D picture that you can review in every perspective. This is a system that can be used for many other sports. Here you can see the long jump, but this also applies to fencing where you can measure thrust speed, back torsion, leg speed, oscillation of the barycenter and body alignment in defensive position. The logic is always the same, breaking the athletic action into small parts in order to understand where the margin to improve the performance is and so how to set up the training to succeed and finally check that the workout has meet the fixed goal. The new eyes of the trainer are now very useful for record, but you should not forget that these new eyes, cannot replace the athlete, his natural talent and his psychological motivation.
