USA Track & Field To Help Develop New Video App That Aides Amateurs With Technique

USA Track & Field today announced an agreement with a tech company to develop a video app that assists amateur competitors with their technique. Coach’s Eye, which was created by software developer TechSmith, analyzes video of a competitor running and provides instant feedback on their technique through slow-motion replays and drawing tools. The deal with USATF will allow users to compare videos of themselves against videos of Olympians like Allyson Felix and Ashton Eaton. The app will cost $1.99 and be promoted at this weekend’s USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Sacramento. Financial terms of the USATF agreement with TechSmith were not provided.
