Football, Running, Swimming

These three resources from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) investigate the ways in which a range of sports use technology to improve performance.

* Opta Sports data uses leading edge technology to compile team and player performance data for a range of sports and has quickly become a staple for a variety of organisations.

* A pioneering rapid manufacturing process invented at Loughborough University is being used to create sprint spikes with a custom made outsole designed to precisely match the power and physical characteristics of the individual athlete.

* New computer software enables Britain's swimmers to improve a key aspect of their technique more quickly and effectively than previously possible - and so help them win more medals in major championships in future.
