Sports and Technology Article: Past and Present

Since we are living in a digital world, sports today are do not just include the usual games and play the previous generations had. Presently, the usual games are being facilitated with the use of technology. Equipment used for the games, as well as the materials and means used to market the games are all technological advancement. Online gaming is also included now and is considered as one of those international competitions.

Before, when we say sports, our mentality will always be more on physicality, but now it is also about being techy. Today, it is quite essential to have adequate knowledge about systems and online trends. In many ways, being knowledgeable about trends is an advantage. Especially that an information can be easily reached and disseminated through an online platform.

If one engage himself or herself in a “usual” sport, like for example soccer, football, baseball, triathlon, high jump, long jump, hurdles, basketball, volleyball etc., that person should be able to manage the skills and at the same time his/her health. These said usual sports obviously requires agility or physical strength. Being able to practice for it and take care of yourself at the same time is a must.

Now, if one will be participating in an international online gaming competition, which obviously will not require too much physical effort, it is still important to consider health matters. Online gaming will require one to sit for hours which is definitely not healthy. Participants should read an Article  that can suggest a good way to at least keep the body healthy given that an online game player does not undergo the same training a usual game participant is doing. The best advice is to mind the food intake. As suggested for everyone, fruits and vegetables with of course protein is the best.

Use of Technology in Sports

It is undeniable that the world is depending on technology. Whether it personal, or public, essential or not, we use technological advancements, and one of the examples are in sports. How?

  1. Equipment. Players, athletes, coaches, and trainers before manually train and teach their students and representatives ways on how to improve and be stronger. Now, with the use of different equipment, they are able to enhance what they need to easier and faster. Equipment for players can be those things they use for workouts and even the things they use to train particularly for whatever sports they are playing.
  2. Devices. Before, during game time, and even after game. These include phones, cameras, even massager. Phones to monitor   vitals, take pictures if necessary even when not necessary, and of course for faster communication. Cameras to see and review some technicalities, errors, fouls, and everything that varies depending on  what game is being monitored. Massager to make sure that after a long game, players will be able to have an immediate remedy for aches and pains. Although not really necessary, still, these are devices that can be handy for them. There are also devices that help referees and other staffs during the game like digital scoring.
  3. Appliances. Not everyone is able to watch a game on time or in actual. Having it replay on a national television matters. Without appliances, others will not be able to witness a game they wish to watch live. So taking the chance to watch it even on replay is a bog NO.

Indeed, technology gives a lot of impact and it is worth it. Because sports is like the best rated sewing machine for quilters. It is like the best product you would always want to have. Definitely not just for your convenience, but because you know how to do it, and you enjoy it.
