Olympic Sports Dataset


The Olympic Sports Dataset contains videos of athletes practicing different sports. We have obtained all video sequences from YouTube and annotated their class label with the help of Amazon Mechanical Turk.

The current release contains 16 sports:


The sequences are stored in the seq video format. There are MATLAB routines for reading/writing/modifying seq files in Piotr's Matlab Toolbox.
This initial release contains some of the sequences used in [1]. We plan to release more sequences in the future.
Current release is 2010.09.07.
The suggested split for training and testing is here.
