  • The effect of video assistant referee (VAR) on match performance in elite
           football: A systematic review with meta-analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ming Li, Xing Wang, Shaoliang Zhang
      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The increased utilization of the video assistant referee (VAR) system in professional football matches has sparked academic interest, leading to investigations of its impact on various performance variables. This systematic review and meta-analysis sought to assess the impact of VAR on match performance in elite football competitions and determine its effects on diverse variables. We undertook a thorough search of electronic databases and conducted a meta-analysis using the statistical software R. The standardized mean difference (SMD) was employed to quantify the pooled effect of VAR on match performance variables, such as red cards, yellow cards, fouls, offsides, and playing times for both halves and the total game. The analysis included 12 studies, covering 10,088 matches from various elite football competitions. Homogeneity was found in the red cards group, whereas significant heterogeneity was noted in the other groups. VAR implementation correlated with a reduction in fouls (SMD = −0.187) and offsides (SMD = −0.216), indicating statistically significant decreases. Conversely, VAR led to an extension in match playing time, notably in first-half (SMD = 0.406), second-half (SMD = 0.517), and total playing time (SMD = 0.747), with all increases being statistically significant. Our findings indicate that VAR has a significant impact on match performance variables in elite football. Furthermore, the efficacy of VAR interventions differs among organizations and leagues, necessitating future research to ascertain whether VAR’s impact is universal or varies with specific competitions.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The technical−tactical performance of women’s football has improved markedly in recent years. Despite this improvement, there are still differences between men’s football and women’s football. The objectives of this study were to know the technical and tactical key performance indicators (KPIs) that differentiate elite men’s and women’s football teams as well as to determine which statistical techniques demonstrate superior classification ability and interpretability in football terms. For this purpose, 768 matches corresponding to the latest editions of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Euro and FIFA World Cup for men and women were analyzed. First, the differences at the bivariate level were analyzed using student’s t-test for independent sample (p

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      This study aimed to analyze which defensive performance indicators differentiate winning and losing teams and to verify which of these variables better predict winning probabilities during the Men’s 2022 FIFA World Cup. Data from all 64 matches played during the competition were gathered from public sources. The variables comprised event-based and positional-based data. Data between winning and losing teams were compared using multivariate analysis of variance, and multiple linear regression was used to detect winning predictors. Results indicated that winning teams performed more forced turnovers (p = 0.017) and spent less time in out-of-possession recovery (p = 0.005) and transition (p = 0.017). The regression analysis indicated that the forced turnovers (standardized beta = 0.446), the possession action per defensive action (standardized beta = 0.582), and the time spent in out-of-possession recovery actions (standardized beta = −0.279) significantly predict the goal difference achieved by the teams (r = 0.499. Adjusted r2 = 0.225). However, the model’s power prediction was low, indicating that multiple defensive strategies can lead to winning outcomes. In conclusion, adopting an aggressive defensive style, aiming at forcing turnovers and seeking to regain the ball high on the pitch, was the most successful defensive strategy observed in the competition.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The present study had two main objectives: (i) to assess the concurrent validity and agreement of real-time measurement of counter-movement jump (CMJ) height using the My Jump Lab (MJL) mobile application in comparison to a force plate and (ii) to evaluate the intra-session reliability and agreement of the force plate and the MJL application. This cross-sectional investigation involved 36 recreationally active, healthy men (mean age = 22.2 ± 2.9 years) who performed five CMJ repetitions on the force plate with a 2-min rest period. Their jump heights were concurrently recorded using both the force plate and the MJL application. The high validity between the two methods intraclass correlation coefficient>0.984) was observed for all cases. There was a nearly perfect correlation (r = 0.968, p = 0.001, in all cases) between the force plate and MJL application, with very good agreement and a mean difference of 1.016 cm (95% confidence interval: −1.229 to −0.803 cm). High intra-session reliability was observed in the force platform (SEM, 0.42 cm; CV, 1.21%; MDC, 1.5; SWC, 1.12), and MJL (SEM, 0.43 cm; CV, 1.23%; MDC, 1.20; SWC, 1.17). The results demonstrate that the MJL application is a valid and reliable tool for measuring jump performance in real-time and assessing CMJ height.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      This study has multiple purposes and these are (i) to divide EuroLeague players into clusters according to their statistics and positions, (ii) to examine the clusters according to the players’ characteristics and their continents of origin, and (iii) to compare statistics of European and non-European EuroLeague basketball players according to their positions. Dataset is based on the 2020–2021 EuroLeague season. Similarities and differences between players are explained by using the t-test/Mann-Whitney U test, effect sizes, Cluster Analysis (CA), and Multi-Dimensional Scaling (MDS). Six different MDS maps have been introduced to separate guards, forwards, and centers in terms of performance indicators (including both raw and per 40 min statistics). Moreover, the vast majority of MDS maps revealed for all positions are visualized with six clusters. MDS Results show that players playing in similar positions and exhibiting similar performances in the EuroLeague are on the same maps. Also, the results prove that European and non-European basketball players have different playing styles and certain clusters are dominated by either European or non-European players. The information to be obtained from this study may benefit on basketball players, coaches, and managers regarding various issues (player development plan and player transfer policy).

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study is to determine the reliability and validity of the IVMES H-Bord eccentric hamstring strength measurement device. Thirty-eight healthy male athletes (age: 20.9 ± 2.11 years, height: 1.79 ± 0.03 m, body weight: 76.6 kg, body mass index: 22.6 ± 0.69 kg/m2) participated in this study. Each test protocol was applied in eccentric mode and isometric mode respectively. Between-session test-retest reliability of the IVMES H-Bord was analyzed for the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) with 95% coefficient intervals (CI). Validity of the IVMES H-Bord was examined for eccentric mode (NHTecc), and isometric mode (NHTiso) using Pearson’s correlation coefficient with 95% CI and limits of agreement. Bland-Altman plots were also created to provide a representation of the agreement between two test devices. Strong correlations, good ICC values and acceptable typical errors of the estimate were observed between the NHT and isokinetic strength testing (IST) during both limbs with no proportional bias for validity analysis. In conclusion, the “IVMES H-Bord” is a reliable and valid measurement device for eccentric hamstring muscle strength and it provides important advantages for medical staff, fitness coaches and practitioners because it is portable, low cost, and field-based assessment.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Video assistant referee (VAR) has been introduced to elite football (soccer) to avoid clear and obvious mistakes, especially for goal scoring situations. Some literature has reported on VAR’s impact on the game across particular league competitions. The current study meta-analysed data across two seasons (pre-VAR and post-VAR) from 20 competitions (n = 9076 matches; men’s domestic leagues and both men’s and women’s international tournaments) to examine the overall impact that VAR initially had on number of goals scored, and the extent of inter-competition heterogeneity. A secondary aim was to determine any VAR-associated reduction in home advantage for goals scored, mean result direction and match closeness. Findings demonstrated that there were no overall statistically significant nor meaningful differences between pre and post-VAR seasons/competitions for total number of goals scored per match. Similarly, there were no VAR-associated reductions in home advantage in terms of goals scored, mean result direction and closeness of match outcome. There was moderate heterogeneity for some comparisons, and VAR lessened inter-competition variance for number of goals scored and match score closeness. Implications of findings are discussed. As the largest VAR-focused study and the first to use meta-analytic approach, the current findings are the most comprehensive and definitive to date.

      Authors: Joseph Seydel
      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The effect of seam orientation relative to the spin axis on the forces of a rotating baseball has been studied, and debated, for as long as baseball has existed. Early debates centered on whether a spinning baseball could even curve and eventually changed to whether the orientation of seams had any impact on the forces acting on the ball during flight. This study uses Computational Fluid Dynamics to show that the seam orientation can have a significant influence on the lift force experienced by a baseball in flight, but that influence diminishes as the rate of spin approaches the natural shedding frequency of a sphere of the same size. Oscillations in the wake caused by the passing of seams across the upper and lower surface eventually give way to larger scale instabilities and the impact of seam orientation on the forces acting on the ball is significantly reduced.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Sports data analysis can revolutionize how coaches and athletes train, leading to enhanced skills and improved team outcomes by providing valuable insights into performance metrics, enabling personalized training programs, and fostering a data-driven approach to decision-making. Sports data analysis has evolved in tandem with the increasing availability of data and the widespread adoption of data-driven practices in sports. Futsal stands out as one of the most challenging team sports to analyze, particularly in the case of female futsal, which has received limited research attention. The high-paced nature of the game, the smaller playing area, and the emphasis on close ball control necessitate a specialized approach to data collection and analysis. This situation presents a significant opportunity for in-depth exploration. By recognizing a gap in utilizing nutrition and physical activity data for female futsal players, researchers embarked on the journey to design and develop a recommendation system based on diet and training data. The study enlisted 14 talented female futsal players, and data was collected using an advanced LPS (Local Positioning System) device. Despite having limited player information, researchers successfully addressed the well-known “cold start” challenge. They created a content-based filtering recommendation system that accurately predicts the caloric expenditure of futsal players, achieving an impressive determination coefficient of 0.94. This innovative system has the potential to revolutionize the training methods of female futsal players, paving the way for advancements in sports data analysis and opportunities to enhance the visibility of women’s futsal on a broader stage.

  • A laboratory method to measure deformation of baseball infield soil
           surfaces using cleated footwear

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Evan Christopher Mascitti, Andrew Scott McNitt
      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Baseball and softball are played primarily on the infield skin. An ideal infield surface allows players’ cleats to penetrate the soil and provide adequate traction yet impart minimal surface disruption. This ideal state has been termed the “cleat-in/cleat-out effect.” As an infield soil dries, it transitions from the cleat-in/cleat-out state to a brittle condition in which the soil readily fractures into chips or clods. . Surface irregularities formed in the brittle condition may deflect batted balls and induce a fielding error or injury. The objective of this research was to develop a laboratory test for identifying the critical water content [math] corresponding to the cleat-in/cleat-out behavioral threshold for any soil. A pneumatically driven apparatus was fabricated to emulate an athlete’s footstrike by applying normal, shearing, and torsional stresses using baseball cleats removed from a commercially available shoe. The test produced several cleat indentations on a cylindrical soil sample. A 3D scanning technique quantified surface disruption via Dirichlet Normal Energy. Volumetric water content was measured using a combination of 3D scanning and gravimetric methods. A given soil sample was tested at several water contents. [math] was determined by plotting Dirichlet Normal Energy against θ and fitting a curve to solve for the local minimum. The method successfully detected differences in [math] between infield soils containing identical clay mineralogy but differing sand content (60% and 75%; p

      This study aimed to understand the collision characteristics of different soccer balls by determining energy dissipation (ED) during collisions. Soccer balls from five different brands were kicked towards a framed tempered glass. The kicks were performed with the balls inflated under three inner pressure conditions. The motion of each ball was recorded using two high-speed cameras at 6000 Hz. The contact surface area (CSA), ball indentation amount (IA), reaction forces (RF) and energetic coefficient of restitution (CoR) during contact were calculated via image processing methods. A new methodological approach was developed to determine the ED during the collision (EDDC). The accuracy of the estimated RF was validated using force plate data, and the CSA values validated the calculated IA. The EDDC were then reduced to a single value to compare with the CoR values obtained using the traditional formula. Differences between CoR and EDDC were statistically tested. One-way ANOVA tests were performed separately to compare the effect of the ball brand on the IA and EDDC for each inner pressure condition. The CoR and EDDC showed no significant difference, proving that the developed method is a valid measure of ED. At 1.0 bar inner pressure, IA and EDDC showed significant differences according to the brands. EDDC, depending on the ball quality, decreased at higher inner pressure values regardless of the brand. Consequently, the present study exhibited that ball quality becomes a critical factor in collision dynamics at high inner pressure values, considering that ball inner pressure may vary between 0.6 and 1.0 bar in official soccer matches.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Hydrodynamic performance of windsurfing boards is greatly affected by geometrical details of their bottom surfaces. In this study, computational fluid dynamics is applied to simulate flow around boards with several bottom modifications, including deadrise, rocker, step, wedge, and wing-tail profile. These simulations are conducted in steady-state, calm-water regimes at high planing speeds. It is found that at similar board trim angles and vertical positions, the largest lift is produced by setups with the bottom wedge and the wing-tail profile that enhance the downward deflection of the incident water flow. The highest lift-drag ratio is achieved by the variants with the bottom step and wedge that enable partial air ventilation of the bottom surface, which leads to reduced wetted surface and lower frictional resistance. The center of lift is located more forward on the rocker and stepped configurations, while it is positioned more rearward for the wedge and wing-tail setups. The obtained results can be used for guiding board designs aimed at maximizing the board hydrodynamic performance in calm water.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) have revolutionised many areas of human life by providing location, navigation, tracking, mapping and timing capabilities. The use of this technology would not be possible without receivers designed for specific applications. One of these areas is sport. The article discusses the advancements made in wearable sport devices over the past two decades (2003–2023) and uses Garmin’s Forerunner receivers as an example. Nineteen of the most advanced models were analysed chronologically and reviewed in three sections: physical properties, internal and external sensors and other functional aspects. The lists are preceded by a description of the historical background of the technology, an explanation of the general principles of operation and the identification of ground-breaking mobile devices before the year 2003. The summary identifies the most likely changes that will affect the publicly available, wearable sports GNSS receivers in the near future.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Recent advancements in deep learning have significantly enhanced the recognition of player activities in sports by enabling automatic feature extraction. In our proposed work, we focus on recognizing six distinct punches in the context of boxing. We incorporate the sliding window technique during the pre-processing stage to transform the time-series data obtained from Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors in a boxing punch activity recognition system. Our approach influences a sensor fusion-based Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) classification model to identify various boxing punches accurately, achieving an impressive F1 score. The system demonstrates proficiency in distinguishing similar activities, such as jab and hook punches where the existing systems made misclassifications due to subtle variations in arm flexion that differentiate the two. Through experimentation, we identify an optimal window size for boxing punch activity recognition, which falls within the range of 15–20 frames (equivalent to 0.15–0.25 s). This window size selection results in a notable reduction in inference time. To evaluate our proposed model, we conduct comparisons with a standard DCNN and an optimized DCNN model. Our proposed optimized DCNN model demonstrates enhanced recognition accuracy, achieving an impressive 99%, coupled with an improved F1 score of 87%. Furthermore, the model displays a remarkable reduction in inference time, clocking in at less than 1 ms. Overall, our research contributes to the field of sports-related player activity recognition by employing the power of deep learning. By expertly combining these techniques, we achieve remarkable accuracy, precision, and efficiency in recognizing various boxing punches.

      Authors: Julian Quah Jian Tan, Jia Yi Chow, John Komar
      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Recent technological advancements have allowed movements to be tracked ecologically via markerless motion capture (mocap). However, occlusions remain a major concern pertaining to markerless mocap. Within racket sports where the number of players involved are low and occlusions are minimal, there exists a unique opportunity to delve into and provide an overview on the utilisation of markerless mocap technology. Twenty studies were included after a systematic search. Several methods were applied to obtain 2D positional data. Most studies adopted some form of background subtraction or thresholding method (n = 12), the remaining relied on pose estimation algorithms (PEA; n = 3), Hawk-Eye (n = 2) and object recognition (n = 1). Conversely, only the visual hull method was found to obtain 3D joint kinematics (n = 2). Markerless mocap are conventionally used to extract joint kinematics, however, study results revealed that the predominant use of markerless mocap was to capture the movement of a player’s location on court, this finding was unexpected. Low sampling frequencies of input videos and unsuitability of model detection used in the included studies could have limited the ability for markerless mocap to accurately track movements in racket sports. While current evidence suggests that the use of PEA in racket sports to extract 3D kinematics is limited, perhaps a slightly different approach gearing towards performance analysis, specifically stroke classification with the amalgamation of player location data and joint kinematics may be worth exploring further.

      Assessment of synthetic turf performance has been undertaken using a variety of experimental methods but is limited in understanding the complex physics of cleat-turf interaction. Computational models could provide insight, but there is currently no validated model of synthetic turf available. The scope of this study was to develop a Finite Element (FE) model of synthetic turf using a hierarchical approach and validate the model using independent test data. A physical third-generation synthetic turf comprising slit-film fibers with sand and rubber crumb infill was constructed. Experiments were conducted using a direct impact (Clegg) device and an artificial cleat-form. Material characterization tests were performed on the individual turf components, integrated into constitutive models, and a full turf FE model was constructed. The carpet was modeled with shell elements while the granular infill was modeled using smoothed-particle hydrodynamics (SPH) elements. A method to simulate the physical pre-conditioning performed on the experimental turf was developed. Both unconditioned and pre-conditioned turfs were assessed using Clegg tests. The re-created Clegg tests on the turf model demonstrated good agreement with the physical tests, with higher acceleration for the pre-conditioned turf. The turf model was validated using experiments with a turf test apparatus including dynamic translation and rotation of a cleat-form. The model predicted results in good agreement with the experiments (average CORA rating of 0.863) on pre-conditioned turf. The resulting model and methods can be expanded to synthetic turf of different constituent materials, to investigate their effects on cleat-surface interaction, optimizing performance, and reducing injury risk.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Traditionally in basketball, five specific positions have been distinguished, often due to the anthropometric characteristics of the players. In recent years, different research has emerged that tries to break with this paradigm, giving rise to different classifications of players based on other characteristics that are more closely related to the actual game of basketball. The aim of this research was to determine the load profiles of players according to internal and external load values. An observational design was used, in which 12 professional players from the Spanish Men’s First Division Basketball (ACB league) team participated, obtaining data from all the training sessions carried out over two microcycles. All players were equipped with WIMUPRO™ inertial devices, using a UWB system for the players’ positioning in indoor spaces. A principal component analysis with varimax rotation was performed to group the variables and determine the profiles. The results showed four different player profiles: versatile, explosive, dynamic, and fast players. Within these load profiles are included players from the five specific positions according to the traditional basketball classification, possessing distinct anthropometric characteristics among themselves. These results allow strength and conditioning coaches to train players physically in a more efficient way, using small-sided games in mid court, or games in full court more adequately, and achieving greater specificity and applicability in their exercises and tasks.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The interplay of biomechanical and neuromuscular aspects aids in the conversion of power production in running performance, and when combined with metabolic factors, these aspects may lead to improved running economy (RE). Therefore, the purpose of this study is to determine the association between the Stryd Power Meter foot pod metrics with RE and performance. Fifteen high-caliber male athletes completed two treadmill running sessions. First, RE was determined at 10 and 12 km/h. Second, two all-out efforts of nine and three minute duration were completed. At 10 km/h, the simple and stepwise multiple linear regression analysis revealed that form power (FP) was the best RE predictor (adjusted R2 = 0.464; p = 0.005) followed by vertical oscillation (VO) (R2 = 0.424; p = 0.005) and ground contact time (GCT) (R2 = 0.363; p = 0.010). At 12 km/h, such regressions confirmed that GCT was the best RE indicator (adjusted R2 = 0.222; p = 0.043) followed by FP (adjusted R2 = 0.213; p = 0.047). During the nine and three minute all-out effort sessions, GCT was the best performance predictor (R2 = 0.491; p = 0.002 and R2 = 0.380; p = 0.014, respectively). The biomechanical factors of GCT and FP are good indicators of RE and running performance.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The barebow archery shooting style previously limited the stabilisation system to weights connected to the riser, which is the central part of the bow, but recently the use of damping devices has been allowed. No scientific study is available to evaluate the effect of damping on the archers’ shooting experience. A human-centred methodology was developed to address this problem. Objective metrics (measurable quantities) and subjective metrics (archers’ sensations using the equipment) were defined. These metrics were correlated to obtain a deeper understanding of the problem. Fifty-one weight configurations were tested for mechanical vibrations and sound of the bow on shooting. The mechanical vibration was measured at five positions on the bow. Fifteen configurations were selected and tested by eight archers to evaluate the subjective metrics. The results show that dedicated vibration-damping devices are capable of significantly reducing the mechanical vibrations and the intensity and pitch of the sound of the bow on shooting. A strong correlation exists between reduced vibrations, lower intensity and pitch* of the sound of the bow and the quality of the shooting experience. The methodology used in this work was successful in fostering an understanding of the relationship between objective and subjective metrics on shooting. The results of this analysis could be used to improve existing designs or create new products for archery.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      In Alpine skiing, the influence of the environment wind on the athlete is crucial. To accurately analyze the coupling effect of environment wind speed, wind direction, and the athlete’s skiing process, this paper establishes the kinematic equations of the athlete based on Newtonian classical mechanics and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and proposes a discretization method for the course. Simulation results were obtained by using CFD to obtain digital twins for the course and its surroundings. The simulation results were also used as input to the wind parameters to analyze the athletes’ sliding performance. The Downhill Process in Alpine Skiing (DPAS) model was constructed to validate the actual downhill course in the Beijing Olympic Winter Games. An analytical framework for downhill skiing with way inhomogeneous winds was demonstrated to be a good simulation and validation of our analytical framework, proving its good simulatability and reliability. The downhill process is also subdivided into four phases: start-up acceleration phase, core acceleration phase, intermittent acceleration phase, and endurance sprint phase, based on the velocity-time curve derived from the actual course simulation. Tactical skiing strategies for skiers to improve their performance are proposed for the different stages of the process. We believe that the DPAS model can also be applied to other parts of Alpine skiing such as slalom, giant slalom, and super-G, and that the results can be used to suggest tactical strategies to improve performance.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      We live in an increasingly interconnected world thanks to the advance of digitalization. Digital tools such as mobile devices or social media platforms have transformed the way in which people and organizations relate to each other. Higher education and sports are two of the areas of society where we have seen more changes caused by the rise of digitalization. In education, digital tools have revolutionized the way in which classes are taught, moving classrooms toward hybrid or online models. In the case of sport, digital tools such as social media are essential for sport managers when interacting with the sport ecosystem. Despite the advances that digital technology is bringing about in society, studies exploring the potential of social media and digital tools in sport management classrooms are scarce. This work explores the possibilities that a little-studied social media platform, such as Pinterest, offers when introduced in the classroom through mobile-based learning and active learning methodologies. In addition, and in a pioneering way in the case of Pinterest, it explores the possible differences depending on the gender of the students. A total of 72 students of the “Sports Equipment and Facilities” course at a Spanish university participated in this study. After finishing the educational intervention with Pinterest, students completed a questionnaire to share their perceptions. Subsequently, t-tests for independent samples were performed through the statistical package SPSS 27.0. The results obtained highlight that all students, regardless of gender, had a positive perception of Pinterest in the teaching-learning process. In addition, women scored higher on all items, with significant differences in four areas. In view of these results, it is concluded that the use of Pinterest through mobile learning is positive in the university context. Furthermore, there is a gender variable influence in the students’ perceptions regarding Pinterest.

      The aims of this study were to compare weekly variations of training monotony (TM) and training strain (TS) among periods of the season, playing status and playing positions in professional soccer athletes. Nineteen male professional soccer players were monitored daily over a 43-week period for their total distance, sprint distance (>23 km h−1), acceleration (Acc,>4 m s−2), and decelerations numbers (Dec,>−4 m s−2). Players were divided in groups of 10 starters and 9 non-starters; and by three central defenders (CD), four wide defenders (WD), four central midfielders (CM), four wide midfielders (WM), and four strikers (ST). Season data was divided in pre-, early-, mid-, and end-season. There were significant differences for TM through sprint distance between playing positions in mid- and full-season. In mid-season, sprint distance was meaningfully greater for CD than WD (p = 0.006; g = 1.74 [0.06, 3.95]), CM (p = 0.002; g = 2.04 [0.28, 4.46]), WM (p = 0.005; g = 1.78 [0.09, 4.02]), and ST (p = 0.002; g = 2.05 [0.28, 4.46]). Regarding full-season, TM of sprint distance was significantly greater for CD than WD (p = 0.031; g = 1.59 [−0.04, 3.73]), CM (p = 0.011; g = 1.83 [0.13, 4.11]), and ST (p = 0.023; g = 1.52 [−0.10, 3.59]). The study revealed that TM and TS of sprint distance in mid-season was meaningfully greater for CD than for WD, CM, WM, and ST. No differences between starters and non-starters were found.

      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      The technological advances of recent decades are having a great impact on society, modifying traditional ways of life by transforming social relationships, transactions, and jobs, among others. The physical activity and sport sectors are not immune to the technological transformation of society, and its adaptation is also taking place, resulting in great technological innovations. The implementation of technology in sports is playing an ever-increasing role by advances in modeling and materials, the design of sports equipment, the monitoring and control of physical and physiological performance, and the improvement of the daily performance of athletes, coaches, and referees.

  • Team selection strategies for major international target archery
           competitions

      Authors: James L Park
      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      Results from major international target archery competitions from 1995 to 2023 have been used to show the score trends and the probability of winning either a podium position or the event versus the archer’s position in a ranking round. The probabilities versus ranking position fall approximately exponentially. Subjectively, archers need to rank at least in the top 16 to have a reasonable probability of winning a medal. Ideally, a team selection process should select those archers with the highest probabilities of winning at least a podium position at the international competition. That can be achieved by using the arrow value scores over the entire selection process, providing bonuses for exceeding given scores in ranking rounds or matches and by not including elimination matches in the selection process.

  • Lead-free 22lr ammunition for sport shooting: A simple implementation or a
           huge challenge'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pär Marklund, Anders Pettersson
      Abstract: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part P: Journal of Sports Engineering and Technology, Ahead of Print.
      In Europe it is approximated that around six million people are active in sport shooting. Currently, most bullets are manufactured out of lead which in many cases is combined with a copper jacket. There are several reasons for using lead; lead is relatively cheap, soft, and has a high density, and is therefore often the ideal material for bullets. Currently, the EU is seeking a restriction or ban on the use of lead in firearm bullets, with the main motivation that hunting with lead bullets might result in lead poisoning of both animals and people. The proposed lead ban will also have a major impact on sport shooting, as it is likely to be subjected to the same regulations. One caliber that has been shown to be very difficult to produce as a lead-free alternative is 22lr (long rifle), which today is the most common caliber for sport shooting in many disciplines. Today, there are not many scientific investigations available which show the performance of lead versus lead-free ammunition in caliber 22lr, even though it would make sense to investigate the possibilities of designing lead-free ammunition before a possible lead ban is further discussed. In this work the performance of two common lead-free 22lr-cartridges is evaluated and shown in comparison with existing lead-based ammunition, with a primary focus on sport shooting. Performance has been evaluated under both summer and winter conditions to cover different sports shooting disciplines. The results of this study clearly show the difficulty of finding lead-free 22lr cartridges with acceptable performance on the market today. In fact, the performance of the tested lead-free ammunition is so poor that the EU’s proposed lead ban could completely ruin shooting as a sport due to a lack of functioning ammunition.
