|Description||Keynote presentation by Bjørn Olstad at the icSPORTS, 7th International Conference on Sport Sciences Research and Technology Support (20 Sep 2019 in Vienna, Austria). Swimming is one of the most popular sports in the world and research is growing. The swimming environment is harsh and challenging to sustain, providing technological limitations for research and the daily monitoring of training performance. However new technologies become more and more advanced and available for providing applied research in the aquatic environment. Technological possibilities are also increasing with the claims of helping swimmers and coaches in their daily work with the promise of improving performance and preventing injuries. This presentation centres around five new technological possibilities for swimming research and the daily monitoring of training. 1) race analysis with automatic movement recognition for identifying and improving performance determining factors, 2) a portable winch system for generating load-velocity profiles, anaerobic and strength testing, and passive drag, 3) optical heart rate for monitoring training intensity, 4) inertial measurement units for daily monitoring stroke kinematics, and 5) electromyographic enhancements for identifying muscular activation patterns, fatigue and correspondence to technique/drill exercises.|
