Read our Article in The Bridge (India) - Winning with Data: Optimization of Training in Sports

This is the first article in a five piece series for the leading Indian sports publication The Bridge. Svexa's Director of Partnerships and former Olympic swimmer Shikha Tandon takes the lead in describing how to optimize training and to make the efforts of the athlete as effective as possible, irrespective of the length and intensity of the training session.

The 10,000 hours of practice rule, popularized by Malcolm Gladwell, is a commonly held belief to achieve expertise in any skill. While this claim has been debunked over the years, in the sports context, many athletes and coaches still believe that longer and harder training hours are the keys to success. In this article Shika describes how the actual situation is much more complex, and it's crucial that training is individualized for each athletes, using tools like Svexa's Athlete Advisor.


Shikha has an MSc in Biology and in Biotechnology, and is an Olympic Swimmer with 37 medals in international championships.
