Why footballers are wearing "sports bras" at FIFA World Cup 2022
Since that celebration
from the South Korean striker was widely
shared on social media
Many wondered about the
reason behind the wearing of this piece of
clothing by the footballers
Few even questioned
if Hee-Chan was wearing a
woman’s sports bra.
These sports bras are officially
called the GPS tracker vest and are very
common among male footballers.
The vest has a GPS device
connected to it which helps the experts understand the
GPS readings of the player.
Reports have hinted that the
data collected helps the team managers and trainers to learn details such as how fast or far a player
ran during training or a match.
The GPS data is not restricted
to the Football. Several other sports such as Basketball etc.
have used this technology
