From registration to results
MYLAPS Sports Timing, a Dutch company with offices in the USA, Australia, China, Japan and Malaysia, is the inventor of automated sports timing and leader in live performance insights. Golazo Sports Netherlands uses the MYLAPS products and platforms before, during and after the event. It starts with the registration process and is further reflected during the event, with timekeeping and live services like LiveTracking in mobile apps and social media integrations. Shortly after the race all results and insights are published on the results platform MYLAPS Sporthive.
Ultimate experience for athletes, spectators and sponsors
‘At Golazo our goal is to nurture passion and emotion in all our projects’, says Mario Kadiks, CEO of Golazo Sports Netherlands. ‘We want everyone to do sports. This is done through organizing sporting events, as well as sports promotion programs. To give our participants and fans the ultimate sports experience, we use the newest technology. We are convinced that this brings our events to a new level.’
Arno Kempenaar, Manager MYLAPS Event Timing:
‘In 1995 the Rotterdam Marathon was the first event in the Netherlands with automated chip timing for all participants. Nowadays, over 20 million racers and athletes per year perform in MYLAPS-timed contests, from the Olympics, major marathons, NASCAR and IndyCar to countless amateur events worldwide. We have been working with Golazo Netherlands for many years, and that’s always been a great pleasure. Golazo is the expert in organizing sports events and knows exactly what their participants, fans and sponsors nowadays need. With our solutions we are happy to do our part.’
