In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to First Team Sports Scientist at PSV Eindhoven, Ruud van Elk. As I say in the podcast, it has been a real mission of mine to get more guests on from Europe as it seems to be very UK, US, and Australia heavy, so I am delighted to get Ruud on the pod. Ruud is a top guy and comes with a glowing reference from a LOT of people that I have spoken to.
In this episode, you will learn -
- Who is Ruud van Elk (background, experience, and current role)
- Athlete tracking
- Creating systems and processes
- Data visualisation
- Integrating technical and tactical data
- How to choose the right technology by asking the right questions
- Injury prediction models
