UM: Swimming

The New York Times reports that UM’s swim team is the only program to have purchased the AvidaMetrics system, which uses wireless sensors to collect performance data in real time – allowing coaches to give swimmers stroke-by-stroke feedback in their ears. The article quotes UM men’s swimming coach Mike Bottom: “We hope this is a revolutionary system that will let us see all this data and know what they’re doing in real time. That will give us a lot more info than just watching their stroke.” [Source]
