German term or phrase: eins
Eins jedenfalls hat das Wissen um diese Variante des Hochleistungssports geschafft.

What is "eins" here? a person? Can anyone help translate the full sentence.

English translation:One thing
Explanation:
is probably how we'd express it in English:

Knowledge about this sort of performance sport has achieved one thing at least.

I don't really like that - but it should give you the meaning.

The knowledge of this variant of high performance sport has produced...


Explanation:
No, it is not a person, it is what someone wants to point out. I am not sure about "produced", for the sentence that follows should determine that.

one thing/accomplishment/achievement/result/change/modification


Explanation:
"Eins" here is shorthand to "Eines", meaning "one thing", "one accomplishment", "one achievement", "one change, "one modification", "one result", or something along that line, depending on your context.

The knowledge of this variant/version of high-performance sports has lead to one accomplishment/achievement/change/modification/result/thing, though.

or "... has resulted in ..."
