Burton finishes strongly for Laser World Championships silver

A silver to Tom Burton at the Laser World Championships in Split, Croatia, this week is another feather in the Olympian’s cap after the sailer won gold in Rio last year. The NSWIS Scholarship Holder celebrates the result after six days of competition that featured 10 races, finishing behind sailor Pavlos Kontides, a Cypriot national hero. Kontides won silver at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the first medal ever won by his home nation of Cyprus.

Figure Skating bronze for Kerry in ISU Challenger Series

Figure skater Brendan Kerry held off strong competition on the weekend to take overall bronze at the Lombardia Trophy in Bergamo, Italy, making him the first Australian man to reach the ISU Challenger Series podium. Ranked 15th in the world, the NSW Institute of Sport athlete delivered his most technically difficult short program so far, including two different quads for the first time, scoring 82.30 points just behind USA’s Jason Brown for third place going into the free program.

Emerging technology assisting athlete performance

Finding innovative ways to achieve performance advantages for athletes is one of the strengths of the NSW Institute of Sport, and the recent use of neurotracker technology is a perfect example. 23 year-old Snowboard Cross athlete Josh Miller has incorporated time spent in the NSWIS “Mind Room” into his preseason training regime, using emerging technology to positively impact his decision-making.
