I believe that sports and data science interrelate perfectly and their combination gives us the chance to understand better the whole business behind a single game. Therefore, for me Statathlon is a unique project based on the above that enables me to use my passion for research and writing about an important aspect of my life.

As an engineer I have learned that it is not only about deriving the result but also explaining it. In Statathlon I found the unique opportunity to combine mathematics with my other passion, football, and strive to describe the phenomena that rule it.
Vasileios Stavropoulos | Data Analyst
I believe in the proverb of Plutarch: “exercise without physical qualifications and knowledge is incomplete”. As an ambitious data scientist, I’m always aiming to broaden my knowledge by interpreting & managing data in order to solve complex problems. In Statathlon, I’m combining my main passions: sports & data science.
Nikos Fournogerakis | Data Analyst
