1. A motion event recognition and video synchronization system comprising:

  • at least one motion capture element configured to couple with a user or piece of equipment or mobile device coupled with the user, wherein said at least one motion capture element comprisesa memory;

    a sensor configured to capture any combination of values associated with an orientation, position, velocity and acceleration of said at least one motion capture element;

    a radio;

    a microcontroller coupled with said memory, said sensor and said radio, wherein said microcontroller is configured tocollect data that comprises sensor values from said sensor;

    store said data in said memory;

    analyze said data and recognize an event within said data to determine event data;

    transmit said event data associated with said event via said radio;

    a mobile device comprisinga computer;

    a wireless communication interface configured tocommunicate with said radio to obtain said event data associated with said event;

    wherein said computer is coupled with wireless communication interface, wherein saidcomputer is configured toreceive said event data from said wireless communication interface;

    analyze said event data to form motion analysis data;

    store said event data, or said motion analysis data, or both said event data and said motion analysis data;

    obtain an event start time and an event stop time from said event data;

    request image data from a camera comprising a video captured at least during a timespan from said event start time to said event stop time;

    display an event video on a display comprising both of 

    said event data, said motion analysis data or any combination thereof that occurs during said timespan from said event start time to said event stop time and 

    said video captured during said timespan from said event start time to said event stop time; and

    ,wherein said computer is further configured to discard at least a portion of said video outside of said event start time to said event stop time and store said event video without said portion of said video outside of said event start time to said event stop time to a server computer external to said computer.
