As Irish athletes compete for gold at this year’s Tokyo Olympics, Output Sports co-founder and CEO Martin O’Reilly will be sitting at home in Dublin cheering on certain stars a little bit more loudly than others.

O’Reilly’s Output Sports has developed a wearable technology for sports coaches and athletes to optimise their performance. Coaches, sports clubs and individual athletes have tapped into the data it produces, including some of Ireland’s Olympic hopefuls such as hurdle star Sarah Lavin and taekwondo athlete Jack Woolley.
