The historical nature of sports engineering is considered and an attempt for the recent popularity of sports engineering is given. The development of sports engineering in the 1990's is described and the interaction of technology and sport assessed with the conclusion that technology causes step jumps in performance while coaching, nutrition and training produces for larger increases in performance. The global sports engineering community is described and the size assessed as approximately 1000 researchers. Finally, a warning is given on the dangers of the misuse of technology in sport.
