  22. 22. ELECTRONIC SCOREBOARDS The movable boards are placed along the track for races. They enable runners to see how much has elapsed since the start and display the runners´ final times after the race.
  23. 23. Starting Blocks Originally just a depression in the ground dug out by the athlete, and later made from wood, today´s starting block is a portable metal device. Since 1928, starting blocks have been used in races of up to 400 m to give runners a firmer push-off, and to prevent runners from slipping during the start. In international meets, they are connected to a device that detects false starts.
  24. 24. Timing A race starts when the starter fires his pistol. An electronic timer is activated by the pistol or an approved start device determines the official result. Moreover, three officials near the finish line time races manually with stopwatches. The results are compared if a record is set. Races up to 10.000 m are time in hundredths of second. Longer races are timed to the tenth of a second, or even to the second.
  25. 25. ANEMOMETER ´This device measures and records the wind speed for races under 200 m, as well as for the long jump and triple jump. For a record to be approved, a tailwind must be less than 2 m per second.
  26. 26. CAMERA A camera films the runners as they cross the finish line. The camera runs continuosly, and is synchronized with a clock that measures time in hundredths of a second.
