Survey on Indian Athlete’s Perspective on Sports Science and Technology

Survey on Indian Athlete’s Perspective on Sports Science and Technology

In the extensive survey exploring the perspectives of Indian athletes on the integration of sports science and technology, our findings reveal a landscape marked by a prevailing positive sentiment toward the adoption of advanced technological tools. Over 80% of the surveyed athletes express a favourable view, endorsing the use of sports technology in their training and performance enhancement endeavours.

What sets this survey apart is its longitudinal dimension, conducted meticulously from 2020 to the present. This temporal span allows us to capture the dynamic evolution of athletes’ perspectives, offering a nuanced understanding of their adaptability to the ever-changing technological landscape.

While this survey provides invaluable insights, it is essential to acknowledge its limitations, including potential selection bias and the cross-sectional nature of the research. Despite these considerations, the survey stands as a foundational resource, offering nuanced perspectives and strategic recommendations that can inform and shape the trajectory of sports technology in India.
