FlightScope Athletics Coaching System Captures Throw Data at UCSD Triton Invitational

15 April 2019

The University of San Diego hosted the annual Triton Invitational on April 12th and 13th at Triton Track and Field Stadium, allowing the FlightScope Athletics Coaching System to capture the event's throw data.

FlightScope captured nearly 1,200 throws across all events during the two-day competition, allowing coaches from all over the country to see the Coaching System in action, and even do live demonstrations with their throwers to understand how the radar works in a competition setting. Coaches were also given the option to receive their throwers' data post-competition so they could save and review the sessions with the athletes and see the benefits of using FlightScope technology firsthand. The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) was also present for the event, and was able to spend time reviewing data with FlightScope.

"Having the launch characteristics of all four throws events will provide excellent feedback for our athletes," said Dr. Phil Cheetham, USOC Director of Sport Technology and Innovation. "I especially like being able to record and synchronize video on multiple cameras. It’s like it becomes two systems in one radar and video."

Notable results from the Triton Invitational include:

- Jordan Geist - University of Arizona- 21.59 meters - Men's Shot Put
- Valarie Allman - Oiselle - 64.44 meters - Women's Discus
- Reggie Jagers - Ironwood - 66.67 meters - Men's Discus

FlightScope thanks UCSD Track & Field Head Coach Tony Salerno for allowing the Athletics Coaching System to be part of the event!

FlightScope will be capturing data at the Pac-12 Championship in Tucson, AZ on May 11th and 12th. For more information on the FlightScope Athletics Coaching System, contact Britney Henry at (407) 624-8440 or britney.henry@flightscope.com.
