USOC extends Infostrada data partnership

Infostrada Sports (IS) and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) have extended their sports data partnership.

Under the four-year deal, USOC will have continued access to IS’s sport performance analytic tool Podium. The governing body will also have unlimited access to the firm’s sports database of Olympic and Paralympic sports.

USOC sport performance chief Alan Ashley said: "It has been clear to our analysts from day one that Podium is the optimal analytic tool to fully suit the needs of our competitive analysis team. Our decision to partner with Infostrada Sports is a testament to its knowledge and experience in sports database management."

Infostrada Sports CEO Danny Menken added: "USOC’s decision to partner with us is recognition of the 15 years of experience we have gained in sports data collection and provision."
