What if every Olympic athlete was training on Strava?

What if we could track the ball and group activities with our team?

What if we could multisync team competitions into a game-based heatmap?

We are missing many athletes in team sports because they are not purely distance-based. Here are some examples:

  • Athletics/Track (New): What if we could track T&F athletes relay racing as a team by adding the baton?
  • Basketball (Update): What if we could multisync the movement of all the players and the ball into one activity?  
  • Cricket (New): **Same as above**
  • Hockey (New): **Same as above**
  • Rugby (New): **Same as above**
  • Soccer (Update): **Same as above**
  • Softball (New): **Same as above**
  • Squash (Update): **Same as above**
  • Tennis (Update): **Same as above**
  • Volleyball (New): **Same as above**
  • Water Polo (New): **Same as above**

Bring the ball and team sports into Strava.

I think Strava has a great opportunity to inspire every athlete across multiple sports by showing the build up to the Olympics by adding & updating Olympic sports in order to inspire the next generation who want to pursue those sports. It won't work for every sport and athletes may decide not to not share their data publicly, but what if some do? They are already using video data analysis companies for training. Professional sports teams can use this to track their athletes.

Potential issues: Many people complain because they don't want to see every single activity from athletes they follow. We can prevent this from happening by giving them the ability choose & filter the feed by activity, athlete, and top posts. We don't need to see every activity if we don't want to. 

Why is this important? When you see someone do it, you are inspired to do it too.

Love it. If this is supposed to be the activity tracking (social) app, it should have many more activities.
