ALTHOUGH HE BELIEVES THAT IT WILL BE OF KEY IMPORTANCE IN THE SPORT OF THE FUTUREhendriks tecnología D.P. · Barcelona In spite of the technological support he uses, Hendriks never tires of repeating that technology will never be more important than people. However, science helps and will be of key importance in the sport of the future. Is it easy to get the players used to so much technology?The players don’t notice it that much. They only see ten percent of what we do. The rest if information which we may or may not decide to use.
