Mining For Medals – Using Analytics to Optimize Olympic Performance

The US Olympic Committee (USOC) is tasked with allocating resources, both financial and service, across all Olympic National Governing Bodies. The discussion will focus on how the USOC uses data analysis to inform these decisions. In particular, it will look at how resources are being applied to directly impact medal count at the Olympic Games and determine what an effective return on investment looks like. The discussion will highlight specific, data driven initiatives which are supported by the USOC, with the aim of maximizing Team USA athlete performance at the Games. Emphasis will be placed on the USOC’s work and partnership with USA Track and Field.
