River Cities Technology – Ryan O’Hea

Due to the large increase in focus on television and media, more and more sports are gaining national attention including armwrestling. According to the article, ESPN will be airing the World Armwrestling League 2015 Championships this week and in addition to this there will be even more extensive coverage. Thanks to River Cities Technology, physical metrics of each competitor will be tracked and broadcasted during each match. This technology follows what many other sport entities have developed over the past few years. These technologies have allowed smaller sports, like armwrestling, to gain a greater national following because fans are increasingly more interested in numbers and being able to quantitatively evaluate athletes. I believe that these technologies will keep popping up in a wider variety of sports thus increasing their popularity and giving viewers at home more options to watch on their television.
