LEN Statement – European Championships 2018


During the afternoon competition session on Saturday 4 August 2018 the LEN Technical Swimming Committee became aware of a potential problem in relation to the race timing equipment for the first nine races of that session.

Upon thorough investigation it became apparent that the starting mechanism had been incorrectly configured prior to the start of the session which resulted in all reported times being 0.10s faster due to a configuration delay of 0.10s.

The LEN TSC working with the timing system operators carried out extensive tests to confirm this system configuration error and have, with the benefit of the necessary technical analysis, revised all recorded times for the first nine races during that session.

The LEN TSC confirms that all times recorded during the first three competition sessions and after the first nine races of that session (subsequently) are accurate.
