29 year old Sivan Averbaya Levi lives with her husband and dog, and lives in Ramat Gan. Nine years ago she lost most of her eyesight while serving in the IDF as a medic and reservists instructor. Following her injury, Sivan discovered goalball, a sport designed specifically for athletes with a vision impairment. Sivan joined the Israeli women's league, attended the Paralympic Games in Rio and continues to practice and compete nationally while she is studying business management. 

 

Challenge 

A very important part of goalball is throwing. Sivan trains a lot and aspires to improve, but lacks a way to assess her current skill performance independently. Sivan is seeking a solution that would indicate the speed and force of the ball according to the different ways of throwing it. The more accurate the indicator, the more Sivan will be able to improve her precision and overall performance.
