The much-discussed topic of «big data» is also becoming increasingly important in the field of sport. Sports associations and sports organisers are collecting more and more real-time data from athletes, which they pass on to third parties for commercial purposes. This article first examines the copyright and ownership rights of sports organisers to real-time data. Subsequently, it is discussed whether athletes have a right to their personal real-time data that grants them a commercial right comparable to image rights and name rights.
