Address to the International Olympic Commitee
by Gideon Ariel, Ph.D.

September 16th, 1995

Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to thank the IOC for giving me this opportunity to present at the 3rd World Congress on Sports Sciences. Nearly 20 years ago I was involved with the USOC in establishing the Training Center in Colorado Springs. Our goal was to analyze and train the U.S. athletes so they would be prepared for international competition.

I have never forgotten the honor afforded me to serve as the Founder and Chairman of the Biomechanics Committee from 1977 to '84. At that time, for the Biomechanics lab, we were able to obtain a half-million dollar computer, the graphics system cost $100,000.00, the most advanced hard disk at that time cost $50,000.00, with a 100 megabyte capacity, and weighed approximately 300 lb. The computer for my presentation today is a Notebook which is faster, has more power, greater capacity, provides sharp color graphics, and weighs 5 pounds! My topic is "Sports Analysis in Cyberspace" and I hope the concepts will contribute to the use of technologically advanced tools and the quantification of athletics and their participants into the twenty-first Century.


Technologic advancements for analyses of sport activities including video-based biomechanics, electromyography, ground force measurements with forceplates, and other tests have become virtually routine. A new dimension added to these technological tools is Cyberspace.

Cyberspace is a term created by William Gibson in his novel, Neuromancer, to represent a universe sustained by a vast network of computers and telecommunication lines.

It is a window on the ever-expanding world of on-line information. The new communication links afforded by rapid satellite/computer exchanges will enable the field of Sports Analysis to advance into a new age of technology, resources, research, data base development, as well as interaction among scientists.

The World Wide Web is ushering in the next generation of publishing, and industrial revolution, bringing together hypertext multimedia and global networking. The Web is growing at an astounding rate and is changing the scientific world by making it possible for anyone to transmit and receive information around the world.

Utilizing the tools available in Cyberspace, the Sports Scientist can retrieve and display data as well as documents from virtually anywhere on the planet. Studies can be conducted at multiple locations and data rapidly exchanged among these sites.

This interface allows information located around the world to be interconnected in an environment that permits users to travel through the information super-highway merely by clicking on "hyperlinks."

Sports analysis in Cyberspace can utilize the following functions:

  • Independent video capturing in various sites around the world.
  • Image sharing between sites.
  • Multi-site digitizing.
  • Analog data such as EMG, Force-plate, etc.
  • Data processing such as transformation and filtering by various sites.
  • Data analysis at various locations.
