Social media erupted with thousands of responses. “Why is Kyler Murray wearing a sports bra?” one person asked.
The clothing is reported to be a vest from Catapult Sports. Murray apparently isn’t the only athlete who wears one.
“They are wearing a GPS vest that just happens to look like a sports bra. The vest is designed to hold a pod between the shoulder blades that contains a 10Hz GPS, an accelerometer and a magnetometer,” the company says.
“These GPS devices are able to capture over 1250 data points per second to measure how much and how hard the players are working, and players and coaches are able to analyze data such as total distance, top speed, number of sprints, sprint distance, power, load, intensity, and more.”
