tracking device for action sports

surfers, skateboarders (or skiers/snowboarders) won’t be feeling so left out of the tracking trend if this Kickstarter campaign hits its funding goal. Trace is a monitoring device for action sports practitioners to catch data on every wave, turn, flip, landing and so on — and a corresponding app so they track their performance and see how they rank against others. …

Those guys raised more than the $150,000 start-up money they needed. Looks like it’s going to be made commercially available by February 2014.

Jess from GymCastic linked to this. And asks whether we should be testing it with Parkour, Trampoline, Gymnastics, etc.

Leave a comment if you’ve used Trace or anything similar.

Artistic Men’s artistic FX

GymCastic linked to a YouTube playlist of Men’s Floor routines that actually wouldn’t make a dancer cringe to watch.

For example, Scherbo – Olympics 92 compulsory.

Compulsories were beautiful. To win you needed to do simple elements better than anyone else.

See more optional Artistic FX routines. (Shewfelt, Thomas, Rivera, etc.)

TeamGym competes running single mini-tramp rather than double mini-tramp currently being competed in Birmingham. Amazing triffus skills.

AMAZING motor lift resi-pit

In Iceland I saw two of these height adjustable resi-pits. (The lift mechanism was broken, on one.)

It’s Cirque du Soleil level technology!

They were originally marketed for Team Gymnastics, a sport that often sets-up and takes-down every day. But the very best use I’d say is for Vault training. They lift up as high as 2m 20cm.

happy birthday Vault Table

Bruno Grandi:

… Ten years ago, on October 28, 2001, the vaulting table debuted at an official FIG competition. It was in Ghent (BEL) where the first Men’s qualifying subdivision was underway for the 35th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships. …

A long re-evaluation process came to an end when the table replaced the vaulting horse. The abrupt change from tradition to contemporary has been a shock to some. And in that context, my compliments and deepest respect to the FIG Vice-President at that time, Siegfried Fischer (BRA), for fervently defending the new table as President of the Apparatus Commission.

Safety was the driving force behind the change. …

FIG

All now agree that the change was a huge improvement. But at the time it was controversial, for WAG.

On the Men’s side, under MTC Chair Hardy Fink, it was a no brainer. The first time we saw the new horse in my region — at Jurassic Classic — every FIG MAG competed on it. First day.

In fact, I can’t conceive of a better design other than to better pad the front and back, under the table. That’s best done with separate donut mats.

There have been very few innovations in 10yrs. The best would be the Tarpan TM available out of Denmark. It’s easy to move and store. And goes up to 165cm for Mini Tramp Vaulting.
