The role of design within the context of sports extends far beyond the shape, look, and feel of a running shoe or racket. Games - both physical and digital - are designed through rules and regulations; the weight of a ball and the responsiveness of a keyboard are designed to define the speed of a game itself. Athletes build and sculpt their bodies. Technology is designed to enhance and optimize human capabilities and to make up for so-called deficiencies. The experience of the spectators is intricately designed as well, from camera placements and drone footage to online streaming platforms to the look and feel of a stadium.
