BMW Helps Olympic Athletes Train

24 10 2011

I dare you to remember a time when an automotive company helped athletes get better at their jobs. There may actually be several examples of this; the one I found connects BMW and USA Track & Field. I was approached by a PR firm about a BMW-developed technology that they were testing with USATF.

It took me awhile to understand how the tech worked and why it could benefit athletes. Very simply, anything that gives athletes a quicker method of evaluating their performance will help. So long as it is sensible tech. This BMW dual camera system I detailed for Wired.com’s Playbook seems as though it would be right up the alley of an athlete, specifically one training for the Olympics.
