Ancient Games Evolves As “Pathway to Paralympics” – Infographic

Sports Technology and Big Data have evolved right alongside the Olympic Games since the Roman Empire banned it some 1600 years ago. The Sports Techie community blog breaks down the “Pathway to Paralympics” Infographic in order to appreciate its place in sport and sports tech history.

Paralympic History

The Games were reborn in 1896 in Olympia, Greece. Remember the name George Eyser because in 1904 he was the very first athlete to compete in able-bodied Olympics with an artificial leg that helped him earn six medals with three of them gold. After World War II, the UK hosted the very first Paralympic Games in 1948 during the summer games for soldiers with spinal injuries; it was called “The Wheelchair Games.”

In 1963, sports business took precedence when three different names were gi...

Why 2013 is the year of the Sports Techie.

Sports Techie Baby!

The best reason 2013 is the year of the Sports Techie is because I am expecting my first child this year with Jessica Stone. Not sure on a name yet but we do know it’s a boy.  I am more excited about this blessing than words can describe.  Writing this blog is in tribute to my son as a good omen to his future and the Sports Techie adventures to come.

Laugh if you will but Jess and I refer to him as Ricky Bobby for now. Yep, think Talladega Nights and Will Ferrell. I actually like the name because my brother is known to many as Ricky and I am Bobby to friends and family. Plus, Jessica hails from Georgia where NASCAR is more of a big deal then here in Seattle...
