ECU is working with the Australian Softball team to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics.

Softball is making its long awaited return to the Olympic games at Tokyo in 2020 and ECU sports science researcher Associate Professor Sophia Nimphius is making sure our softball team is in tip top shape to bring home gold in Japan.

The Australian softball team has a long history of success at the Olympics and ECU's sports science researchers are hoping to help continue that tradition.

They're working with the team to improve all aspects of their game, particularly pitching and fielding.

The research changes up the traditional idea of lab-based research by taking the lab out into the field. That means results are more accurate because they take into account how sports are actually played.
