With the development of microtechnology, data analytics is providing insight into sport like never before. This information is being used to inform training practice and support the development of elite athletes. This Honours project will allow a candidate to use real world data to investigate the match and training demands of elite rugby union or Australian Football. Furthermore, this project will allow the candidate to influence real-world practice with their findings. This project is ideal for a candidate who enjoys sport, large data sets, and technology, and is open to individuals from a range of backgrounds (e.g., sport science, sports engineering, data science).
