Performance Modelling and Anti-Doping | Frontiers Research Topic

The Athlete’s Biological Passport (ABP) is a strong tool for the indirect detection of blood doping. While doping aims at improving athletic performance but alters biomarkers measured in the ABP, exercise training is also known to influence these parameters. Conversely, variation in biomarkers observed in the ABP may coincide with improvement (or decrement) of athletic performance. Numerous studies have associated variations in biological parameters to performance alterations as either explaining variables or confounding factors. For example, endurance sports rely essentially on aerobic energy production (i.e., with oxygen) and maximal oxygen consumption is highly related to the athlete’s total hemoglobin mass. Besides, several analytic models allow to model performance capacity precisely from work capacity in several sports. In cycling for instance, power output is recorded extensively throughout training and races by a vast majority of athletes. This data is then often used to define peak power profiles to monitor training/racing load and adjust training programs to reach desired peak fitness at certain moments of the season. Interestingly, the ABP was first adopted in cycling by the International Cycling Union (UCI) and has provided an extended overview of the variations in hematological parameters in professional cyclists. These variations may be linked with differences in performance levels seen during races. However, to date, there is no conclusive evidenc

[1712.01199] tHoops: A Multi-Aspect Analytical Framework Spatio-Temporal Basketball Data

tHoops: A Multi-Aspect Analytical Framework Spatio-Temporal Basketball Data (this version, v5)) We make use of the PARAFAC decomposition and we decompose the tensor into several interpretable patterns, that can be thought of as prototype patterns of the process examined (e.g., shot selection, offensive schemes etc.). We also introduce an approach for choosing the number of components to be considered. Using the tensor components, we can then express every entity as a weighted combination of these components. The framework introduced in this paper can have further applications in the work-flow of the basketball operations of a franchise, which we also briefly discuss.

FOOTBALL COACH ANALYTICS SUMMIT

FOOTBALL COACH ANALYTICS SUMMIT | lIASIng | Scoop.it
This event offers a wide range of opportunities for assistant coaches to expand their resources in relation to the identification of key collective behaviours. This will facilitate their possibilities to change the dynamics of the game (at both a qualitative and quantitative level) by means of tactical solutions, conjugating the same alternatives based on data analysis. Some of the already confirmed speakers (coaches) will also show attendees the technological resources that they use during breaks, as well as group work procedures (what the analyst does, what the trainer/coach does, etc.) in relation to the treatment of the data.   Aimed at: Professionals within coaching staffs: coaches, assistant coaches, video analysts, among others Data scientists Researchers with interests in sports analytics
