Almost perfect timing
« on: June 27, 2008, 05:46:30 PM »
If the winner of the mens 100 meters in the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials runs a world record of 9.70 seconds on Sunday, the crowd at Hayward Field should know it just a split second later.

That is the goal of the timer, who wants to get the final result and post it on the videoboard in as speedy a manner as the participants are running.

The adrenalin rush for the timer is to be as rapid as they can and as accurate as they can, said Eugene resident John Teising, who will be the backup timer for the Trials. You try to feed into the crowds anticipation. Im doing my job the best if I can put the times up right away. They cross the line and bang, bang, bang, thats what I like doing.
