Congratulations to Abbas Meamarbashi and colleagues on the founding of the Journal of Advanced Sports Technology, servicing the middle east as well as the international community, it so exciting to see it developing everywhere. Sports Technology really has exploded in the past decade becoming a mainstream role in many sporting organisations and popular through consumer devices. It also offers unparalleled opportunities for sports scientists and allied health researchers and professionals to ask and answer many more interesting research questions that can ultimately benefit humanity.
Its a delight to see Griffith SABEL director David Rowlands amongst the editorial board too. Thanks for the invitation to publish the guest piece “Wearable Technology in sport, a convergence of trends” as well. I quite enjoyed exploring the underlying trends that have created the opportunities today and some pointers for the way forward.
