Kijkers van Eurosport kiezen Bolt, Ennis en Spanje als Sportman, Sportvrouw en Sportploeg van het Jaar in sportverkiezing georganiseerd in samenwerking met AIPS

Usain Bolt, Jessica Ennis en het Spaanse mannenvoetbalelftal zijn door het publiek als winnaars gekozen in de door Eurosport in samenwerking met de AIPS (International Sports Press Association) georganiseerde verkiezing van de Sportman, Sportvrouw en Sportploeg van het Jaar 2012.

Sportliefhebbers uit de hele wereld brachten meer dan 60.000 stemmen uit in deze verkiezing van Eurosport die werd gehouden op de Facebook-pagina van de zender om de beste sportman, sportvrouw en sportploeg van het jaar te kiezen.

Het zal niemand verrassen dat deelnemers aan de Olympische Spelen van Londen 2012 in dit Olympische jaar de boventoon voeren. De Spelen werden live uitgezonden op Eurosport en ze stonden duidelijk nog vers in het geheugen van de sportliefhebbers gegrift. Usain Bolt leverde in Londen een ongelofelijke prestatie door drie gouden medailles in de wacht te slepen, net als in Peking in 2008. De Jamaicaan domineerde de mannencategorie van de verkiezing met maar liefst 40,81% van de stemmen, ruim voor Cristiano Ronaldo (16,71%) en Yannick Agnel (9,53%).

De Britse heldin Jessica Ennis, winnares van het goud op de vijfkamp tijdens de Olympische Spelen in haar eigen land, veroverde 38,21% van de stemmen in de vrouwencategorie. Hiermee liet ze Serena Williams (30,61%) en Marit Bjoergen (10,73%) achter zich.

Een uitstekend Spaans voetbalelftal veroverde zijn derde opeenvolgende grote internationale titel tijdens de UEFA EURO 2012, eveneens uitgezonden op Eurosport. Het team veroverde 42,34% van de stemmen in de categorie sportploeg, ruim voor het Amerikaanse mannenbasketbalteam met 14,22% en FC Barcelona met 13,91%.

"2012 is een fantastisch jaar geweest voor de sport, en het vervult ons met trots dat Eurosport zoveel grote evenementen heeft uitgezonden en daarmee de liefhebbers de best mogelijke verslaggeving heeft geboden. Sporters als Bolt, Ennis en de Spaanse voetballers maakten een uitzonderlijk jaar door - zelfs afgemeten aan hun eigen hoge normen - en dit wordt weerspiegeld in de stemmen van zowel het publiek als van de deskundige jury. We verheugen ons er nu al op om ze ook in 2013 weer op Eurosport in actie te zien,” aldus de woordvoerder van Eurosport, Global Communications Director Heather Bowler.

In het kader van het toenemende samenwerkingsverband met de AIPS heeft Eurosport zich in 2012 voor het eerst aangesloten bij het initiatief voor de verkiezing van de Sportman, Sportvrouw en Sportploeg van het Jaar. Dit jaar bood Eurosport zijn kijkers de gelegenheid hun stem te laten horen naast die van de internationale sportmediaprofessionals van het AIPS die in hun jaarlijkse sportverkiezing kozen voor Usain Bolt, Serena Williams en het Spaanse voetbalelftal.

Eurosport is sportentertainmentgroep nr. 1 in Europa, en biedt maar liefst zeven tv-kanalen en een internationaal netwerk van 15 websites in 11 talen.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated.

Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
