Episode 174- Ben Williams, INEOS TEAM UK- Shotgun Sport Science

“Use the data correctly to make them the best athletes they can be.”

“It doesn’t matter what the technical model says, if it doesn’t add up for the individual, we don’t do it.”

“What right for an individual athlete is what’s right for them, and we don’t push things that don’t need to be pushed.”

“No matter what information is out there, it’s the human that’s important.”

Today we are joined by Ben Williams to discuss the role of sport science in sailing and competing in The America’s Cup. After giving us a brief background of how he got from The British Army to sailing Ben dives right into the challenges of his position and the goals that he has moving forward with managing the team. This includes his ideas on technical models vs soft skills and how that progressed through out his career. He then dives into the process that he goes through when it comes to making decisions on directions that they plan on moving the program forward. We finish off talking about the importance of flexibility with programing, especially when your sport is completely determined by the weather.
