Leaders Sports Awards
The COVID-19 pandemic brought the sport world to a stop with most events either postponed or cancelled. In an attempt to answer this crisis, right holders have turned to different forms of virtual alternatives to keep providing content to their audiences. We therefore asked ourselves: how could we contribute to bring real sports back on TV and other digital platforms? Distributed timekeeping was our answer! Our efforts have been recognized by winning the prestigious LEADERS SPORTS AWARDS 2020 in the Innovation category, with competitors being nothing less than F1 and Sky, among others!
The sports timekeeping specialist behind the great brands
Swiss Timing, a Swatch Group company, is one of the world’s leading sports timekeepers. Its global reputation is based on an unparalleled range of services and a legacy of innovation. Swiss Timing not only provides timekeeping, data handling, and results distribution, it is also behind the development of the industry’s most important technology. For more than 40 years, Swiss Timing has been one of the most trusted and innovative names in sport.
The service that gave us our name
There’s no question that timekeeping is one of the key components contributing to the excitement of a sporting competition. Without the ability to measure the times and distances that separate a winner from the runners-up, competition as we know it would be impossible. Without timing, there would be no world or Olympic records.
Instant information for every Audience
The drive to achieve a fabulous result in a competitive event motivates athletes in every sport. And while fans attending the games or watching them on television enjoy the beauty and nobility of a great performance, every eye at the venue (or at home) turns immediately to the scoreboards to see the final results. Was it a world record? Who were the top three finishers? Did my hero qualify for the finals?
