“Winter is coming’ might be the motto of House Stark in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, but it is of great relevance to countless athletes who need to adjust their training regimes during the colder and wetter months of the year. With winter approximately 5 months away now is as good a time as any to start planning for what could be a frosty winter. Getting up at the crack of dawn to do a 10-mile run or cycle in sub-zero temperatures is not only potentially-dangerous but downright unpleasant as well...

State Farm Arena Transformation With Sports Tech Enhanced Features

State Farm Arena Transform With Sports Tech Enhanced Features

State Farm Arena opens tonight when the Atlanta Hawks play the Dallas Mavericks after a $200 million arena refurbish of which $142.5 million came from Georgia public funding, something I am fully against because billionaire owners don’t need the money, right.

Unfortunately, with the new sponsor and all the technology-driven bells and whistles like the fan...

The Sports Techie community blog believes in safety first when it comes to sports tech.

Just as quickly as they gained popularity, they were labeled hazardous. These dangerous early hoverboards all had one thing in common though – the batteries were all traced back to a single factory in China and sold for cheap...
