SportRetiNA latest news and blog

Technology, sport and much more.

We are passionate about technology and passionate about sport, so why not talk about both in one place? Here, sport coaches, athletes and fans can find (hopefully) useful information about science and tech applied to sport performance, how this can differ across the different sports and what hardware and software products are out there in the market.
