Ollie Summers

Data Scientist @ Catapult

Ollie began his professional life as a chemical engineer before making the switch to sports analytics. Since that change, he’s been able to apply his data science knowledge to a wide range of problems at the English Institute of Sport, UK Sport, ParalympicsGB and Catapult. This has included working across 10 different sports, generating medal predictions for Rio 2016 (Olympics & Paralympics) and developing a new world ranking system for the Boccia International Sports Federation. In 2017, Ollie came first in a hackathon aimed at integrating insights from football tracking data with video. This is now his full-time focus with Catapult’s new video analysis product, VISION.
