The raise of novel mobile sensor and actuator technologies in the past decade enabled sonification of sport related data in real time for the athlete. We have systematically analysed scientific literature with respect to sports domains, feedback goals, user types, used sensor technology, and how the captured sensor data was sonified. We describe these aspects of 34 selected papers. Our analysis enables researchers to grasp prevalent approaches and to identify blind spots for new ways how sonification can not only aid athletes to improve their performance, but also to enhance the experience of various sports practitioners through sonification.
