Markers

Athletes are not allowed to use their own markers. For the Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault and Javelin, competitors are required to use the markers provided by the LOC. These will be available at the event site. For the relays, athletes will be provided with adhesive tape by the Competition Officials on the track.

Timing and Measurement

SEIKO is the Official Timing Company and will be responsible for the installation and management of all timing and measurement equipment for the stadium and road events. A complete electronic starting system will be used for all races, which will include an electronic starting signal. For the sprint events up to 400m including the relay events, False Start Detection and Auto Recall will be used. Athletes must use the starting blocks provided. A photo finish system will be used to determine race time and position. The medal winners will each receive a commemorative Photo Finish print at the medal ceremony.
