Analytics in the pool

Part of the IAPA "Analytics of Significance" webinar series

How performance analytics helps Swimming Australia win gold

With nine gold medals at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the Australian Dolphins became the most successful gold-medal winning squad in Australian Olympic history. For Jess Corones, Swimming Insight & Olympic Campaign Lead (Performance Support) at Swimming Australia, it was the culmination of an exciting 24-month performance support journey - from juggling analysis via spreadsheets to advanced predictive analytics using cloud based machine learning.

Join us at 1pm on 8 June to hear Jess share her journey, the learnings and the excitement of seeing predictions within 0.1 of a second of the actual results. This one-hour webinar will delve into the role advanced analytics played in the preparation, coaching and selection of the swim team that delivered a historic nine gold, three silver and eight bronze medals in the pool.

Join us for lunch with Jess and plenty of time for questions.
