Ice Skating is a very spectacular and fast type of sports. It takes a lot of training to become good at it – which makes skaters demanding clients. They want to know exactly what, when, where and how they performed – right after crossing the finish. Combined with the serious speeds professional skaters can reach (of up to 60 km/h!), timekeeping at skating competitions is tough
When dealing with winter sports like ice skating, facing the elements may make timekeeping even harder than usual. As always, timing just needs to work to make a success out of any event, so durable and lasting equipment is needed. Preferably easy to set up, use and monitor, from an organization’s perspective as well as through the eyes of the athletes. Everything needs to run smooth.
Ice Skating is a highly competitive type of sports. There are various types, including speed skating, short track and skating tours. All these races have one thing in common: races are usually very exciting and fast and finishes can be very close. Tight finishes require a reliable and accurate system. The MYLAPS ProChip System can measure finishes up to 3/1000th of a second.
