Recently an awesome video came up on my Facebook feed about the use of sport technology to enhance athletic performance. The video was close to home on several fronts:
- It features Lolo Jones who helped spearhead the championship teams when I was at LSU
- The video takes place on the legendary LSU track that was my home for 4 years
- It incorporates technology that I’m intimately familiar with….Vidon and optojump
- Less than 100m away from where the video was shot was the biomechanics lab where I did much of my doctoral research using the Vicon system used in this video.
