Accurate numbers also helped Ondřej Perušič and David Schweiner win gold at the World Beach Volleyball Championship.
Hear how the world champions in beach volleyball work with analyst Jaroslav Bartoš
Italian national team coach Andrea Tomatis recalled how analyst Jaroslav Bartoš turned pale during the tiebreak in the World Cup final against the Swedes.
Beach volleyball players Perušič and Schweiner played the decisive set for the gold. But then they started losing one ball after another and even lost a luxurious six-point lead.
The Czechs won the dramatic final by the narrowest possible margin, and that’s how world champion David Schweiner, with a gold medal around his neck, could describe the man who made a huge contribution to the title.
“An elderly gentleman, bald, Mr. Jaroslav Bartoš alias beiddata, who takes care of our statistics. In combination with Andrea Tomatis, they form an incredible statistical tandem,” Schweiner described to Radiožurnála Sport, and his partner Ondřej Perušič continued the description.
“And who has now returned to his normal color, because he was the gentleman on whom Andrea reported that he did not look completely healthy at the end of the tiebreak,” said world champion Perušič.
An uncertain path
The path to the coveted gold medals was thorny. Perušič and Schweiner did not win anything in their first year together. Nothing. Not a single international match.

There were even situations where they bought tickets to a tournament in Brazil. They flew to South America because there was a chance to get into the main competition from the reserve list. Contrary to expectations, however, no one signed up. They could take a picture on the beach and fly back again.
“I am happy to be with the boys and their coach from their beginnings. We started working together in 2018 and thanks to feedback from other trainers from the world circuit, I made the current version of the software we use. There is information that coaches are interested in and it goes into quite a bit of detail,” analyst Bartoš describes the cooperation.
“I hope so and that it can be seen. Their coach Andrea claims that it is a puzzle and as far as statistics are concerned, they can mean one or two points per set and that is a lot. When we consider that in beach volleyball every point counts, that one point can mean that luck is on your side.”
Analyst Jaroslav Bartoš continues with Perušič, Tomatis and Schweiner. His exact numbers will be useful for example at the upcoming Tournament of Champions or at the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.
