Brain Injuries and Extreme Sports?

The appeal of extreme sports is in the adrenaline rush the athlete feels while engaged in the activity. The inherent danger involved, combined with the athlete’s requirement to push their body beyond its perceived limits, makes sports such as base jumping and free climbing a draw for millions of thrill seekers. Unfortunately, those who choose to participate in extreme sports often pay a higher price than other athletes. Injuries suffered by extreme sports athletes are often more severe and, as is the case with brain injuries, can sometimes lead to permanent disability.

In 2009, there were nearly 447,000 people treated in emergency rooms for sports-related head injuries, up 95,000 from the year prior...

It’s about Time we Let Technology Tell the Truth in Football

I can still remember that gloomy afternoon when England lost to Germany in the 2010 World Cup, I had just launched the Sports Techie community blog. Surely that Lampard shot was over the line!  There’s plenty more stories where that comes from, though that Geoff Hurst shot in the 1966 World Cup Final was miles over the line, wasn’t it?

It took the world of football until 2012 to finally agree on introducing goal-line technology and not a moment too soon. Finally we do have the goal-line technology that answers the question of whether a goal is indeed a goal or not.  About time too I hear you screaming “and why has it taken so long?”

We may well jest about that Geoff Hurst goal in 1966  (the year I was born) but it’s not t...
