Making data valuable and taking off – webinar with ski jumping legend Toni Innauer.
Toni Innauer (Mag. Anton Innauer), is a ski jumping legend: Gold and silver at the Olympics and World Championships, two-time world record in ski flying with distances of 174 and 176 meters. Innauer was the first ski jumper to receive the best score of 20 from all judges, Toni Innauer was an exceptional athlete. After his career as an athlete and his studies in philosophy/psychology and sports, he continued his unique sports career as a coach and sports director in the Austrian Ski Federation (ÖSV). He revolutionized training methods, changed the whole team to V-style and again achieved unprecedented results: The Austrian team won 5 out of 7 possible medals at the Olympic Games in Albertville in 1992.
Successes on this scale are no coincidence. Innauer began to put the training methods on a scientific basis. He began to collect data, e.g. sensors in the binding plates measuring the pressure during the jump at the ski jump table. The goal was to determine the factors that were decisive for success. Parameters were varied such as ski length, jumping position and more. In parallel, athlete profiles were created to determine what the tailor-made parameters were for each individual competitor. Outstanding knowledge about ski jumping and flying, manifested over the years in data series. Big Data in a different environment.
