5 © Copyright Swim Ontario 5 Role SW The chief finish judge shall assign each finish judge his position and the placing to be determined This FINA rule applies to those federations where Finish Judges are still used. In Canada, this position has been eliminated for all sanctioned meets (CSW ) SW After the race, the chief finish judge shall collect signed result sheets from each finish judge and establish the result and placing which will be sent directly to the referee. The Chief Finish Judges primary role responsibility is the determination of the official placing and results of a race. SW Where Automatic Officiating Equipment is used to judge the finish of a race, the chief finish judge must report the order of finish recorded by the Equipment after each race.

6 © Copyright Swim Ontario 6 Location Usually in a room to the side of the deck or an area free of excess traffic, noise, or air turbulence (you dont need cards or papers flying around) with easy access from the deck for receipt of cards, Timekeeper sheets, or electronic tapes. Accessible to the Referee for resolution of time/place discrepancies. If possible, there should also be easy access to Chief Judge Electronics and Chief Recorder/Scorer-Meet Office.

7 © Copyright Swim Ontario 7 Before the Meet Pre-Meet Briefing With The Referee. Ask how the Referee wishes time/place discrepancies to be handled (RD) Would he like you to solve them according to the rules, and then advise him of the decision for his approval? How does the Referee want to handle the signing of each events results? (SW ) Introduce yourself to the other Key officials. Your responsibilities require you to interact with the Clerk of Course Chief Timekeeper-Recorder/Scorer (Desk Control) Chief Judge Electronics. How will combined events be indicated on the cards, sheets? Ensure the Chief Timekeeper briefs his Timekeepers where on the cards the splits and times are to be recorded (Chief Timekeeper and/or Referee will brief the timers).

8 © Copyright Swim Ontario 8 Before the Meet How will you receive your electronic tapes? How will the Chief Judge Electronics notify you of any problems? Are there Runners in place, if needed? (If pre-seeded event sheets are being used, often an assistant Chief Finish Judge can be assigned to collect these) Any special requirements for the Recorder/Scorer or office? How and when would the office like to receive the time cards or sheets? (i.e.. distance events). Check out your working space and equipment required.

9 © Copyright Swim Ontario 9 During the Meet Monitor the performance of Assistant Finish Judges and address any problems. If the Timekeepers are putting the times in the wrong places on the time cards, advise the Chief Timekeeper of the lane and the problem that is occurring. The Chief Timekeeper looks after his Timekeepers.

10 © Copyright Swim Ontario 10 Automatic Officiating Equipment SW 11.1 The operation of Automatic Officiating Equipment shall be under the supervision of appointed officials. Times recorded by Automatic Equipment shall be used to determine the winner, all placing and the time applicable to each lane. The placing and times so determined shall have precedence over the decisions of timekeepers. In the event that a break-down of the Automatic Equipment occurs or that it is clearly indicated that there has been a failure of the Equipment, or that a swimmer has failed to activate the equipment, the decisions of the recordings of the timekeepers shall be official. [See SW 13.3]

11 © Copyright Swim Ontario 11 Automatic Judging and Timing System SW Where Automatic Officiating Equipment is used to judge the finish of a race, the Chief Finish Judge must report the order of finish recorded by the equipment after each race. Automatic Officiating Equipment takes precedence over manual times, at times when it is deemed to be operating correctly.

12 © Copyright Swim Ontario 12 Timing Factors SW 11.2 When Automatic Equipment is used, the results shall be recorded only to 1/100. When timing to 1/1000 is available, the third digit shall not be recorded or used to determine time or placement. In the event of equal times, all swimmers who have recorded the same time at 1/100 shall be accorded the same placing. Times displayed on the electronic scoreboard shall show only to 1/100 of a second.

13 © Copyright Swim Ontario 13 Disqualifications SW 11.4 Should a swimmer be disqualified during or following an event, such disqualification should be recorded in the official results, but no time or place shall be recorded or announced. This rule is for meets where official results are announced immediately after the race. At most meets you will leave the official time empty and place the card at the end of the event. Ensure the DQ is clearly marked for the Recorder/ Scorer. SW 11.5 in the case of a relay disqualification, legal splits up to the time of the disqualification shall be recorded in the official result This is for the Recorder/Scorer at most meets. SW 11.6 All 50 meter and 100 meter splits shall be recorded for lead- off swimmers during relays and published in the official results. This is for the Recorder/Scorer at most meets.

14 © Copyright Swim Ontario 14 Manual Times & Manual Placing Determine the official times of the heat. (SW 11 Timing) FINA does not have meets that use manual times or manual finish judges who determine the official times of the heat(s). SW 11.3 Any timing device that is terminated by an official shall be considered a watch. Such manual times must be taken by three Timekeepers appointed or approved by the Member in the country concerned. All watches shall be certified as accurate to the satisfaction of the governing body concerned. Manual timing shall he registered to 1/100 of a second. Where no Automatic Equipment is used, official manual time shall be determined as follows. When three watches are being used: In the event that all three watches agree, then thats the time.

15 © Copyright Swim Ontario 15 Official Manual Times SW If two of the three watches record the same time and the third disagrees, then the two identical times shall be the official time. 1:02.66, 1:02.76, 1:02.66 The official time is 1:02.66 SW If all three watches disagree, the watch recording - the intermediate time shall be the official time. 1:02.60, 1:02.76, 1:02.94 The official time is 1:02.76 CSW If only TWO watches are being used, the arithmetic average to the slowest hundredth shall be the official time. 1:02.65, 1:02.76 The official time is (.65+76) / 2 = 0.705, (rounded up becomes 0.71), = O.T. of 1:02.71 This is where a calculator can be very handy. Complete the official time on the bottom of the card. Finish Judges do not enter into this decision. If three times are recorded on the time card, use the official time as calculated above. Place the time cards in a sequence of official times (fastest to slowest). Compare the time cards to the official Chief Finish Judges report. If the time sequence is not the same as the official placing, follow the procedure established with the Referee during the pre-meet briefing.

16 © Copyright Swim Ontario 16 Finish Judge (Other than Canada) CSW Use of Finish Judges has been eliminated in all Canadian sanctioned meets. However, a Chief Finish Judge is required. SW Finish Judges shall be positioned in elevated stands in line with the finish where they have at all times a clear view of the course and the finish line, unless they operate an Automatic Officiating device in their respective assigned lanes by depressing the push button at the completion of the race. SW After each event the Finish Judges shall decide and report the placing of the swimmers according to the assignments given to them. Finish Judges other than push-button operators shall not act as Timekeepers in the same event. SW Officials shall make their decision autonomously and independently of each other unless otherwise provided in the Swimming Rules.

17 © Copyright Swim Ontario 17 Finish Judges & Placings SW When using finish judges without three (3) digital watches, the referee shall determine placing where necessary. Automatic Officiating Equipment, if available and operating, shall be consulted as stated in SW Any problems the Chief Finish Judge is unable to resolve are referred to the Referee. If the Official times are identical, the swimmers shall be TIED (TI). The Referee will be advised of the placings according to his directions during the pre-meet briefing. This may be when the Recorder/Scorer or Desk Control brings the result sheets to the Referee to review and sign. When the heats of an event are combined, the cards and slips are sent to the Recorder/Scorer or Desk Control, according to the Referees directions.

18 © Copyright Swim Ontario 18 Failure of Automatic Judging and/or Timing System (SW13.1 & SW13.2) SW 13.1 When Automatic Officiating Equipment (see FR 4) is used in any competition, the placing and times so determined and relay take- offs judged by such Equipment shall have precedence over the timekeepers.

19 © Copyright Swim Ontario 19 Determining Placing SW 13.2 When the Automatic Equipment fails to record the place and or time of one or more swimmers in a given race: SW Record all available Automatic Equipment times and places. SW Record all human times and places. SW The official place will be determined as follows: Complete comparisons and ranking procedure of Automatic Equipment times and places. The Chief Judge Electronics may indicate a malfunction or inactivation of the equipment (light touch) by a note on the computer print out paper. In this case the Chief Finish Judge should use the manual times and mark the time card (MT) Manual Time. Should the Chief Finish Judge see a discrepancy of 0.30 seconds or greater between an automatic time and the manual time, it should be viewed as a possible malfunction of the electronics and reviewed by the Referee or dealt with as determined in the pre-meet briefing.

20 © Copyright Swim Ontario 20 Determining Placing SW The official place will be determined as follows: SW A swimmer with an Automatic Equipment time and place must retain his relative order when compared with the other swimmers having an Automatic Equipment time and place within that race. SW A swimmer not having an Automatic Equipment place but having an Automatic Equipment time will establish his relative order by comparing his Automatic Equipment time with the Automatic Equipment time of other swimmers. SW A swimmer having neither an Automatic Equipment place nor an Automatic Equipment time shall establish his relative order by the time recorded by the Semi Automatic Equipment or by three digital watches. If automatic equipment fails, the time from three digital watches is official.

21 © Copyright Swim Ontario 21 The Official Time SW 13.3 The official time will be determined as follows: SW The official time for all swimmers having an Automatic Equipment time will be that time. SW The official time for all swimmers not having an Automatic Equipment time will be the three digital watches or the Semi-Automatic Equipment time. If there is no automatic equipment time use three human times (Finish Judges not needed in Canada)

22 © Copyright Swim Ontario 22 The Official Time SW 13.3 The official time will be determined as follows: Note: SW In the event that swimmers from the same or different heats have equal times registered to 1/100 second for either the eight place or sixteenth place, there shall be a swim-off to determine which swimmer shall advance to the appropriate finals. Such swim-off shall take place not less than one hour after all involved swimmers have completed their heat. Another swim-off shall take place if equal times are registered again. Notify the Referee or Meet Manager, in the method determined during the pre- meet briefings. Record the placing within the event on each card. (when swimmers from different heats have the same official time, whether automatic, manual, or a Referees decision, they shall all be TIED in their relative order of finish.) Ties will take up the same number of placings as the number of swimmers involved in the tie.

23 © Copyright Swim Ontario 23 Ties & Exceptions PlacingOfficial Time 11: : :02.43 While entering the placings, ensure that the markers are also indicated: Exhibition Swims (EX), Official Splits (OS), and Disqualifications (DQ). Placing these at the bottom of your cards, results sheets and or electronic tapes. Bundle all the cards,lanesheets for the event (time cards, finish sheets and electronic tapes) together and forward as directed by the Referee. (usually to the Recorder/Scorer or Desk Control in the Meet Office)

24 © Copyright Swim Ontario 24 Refer to Official Placings SW If the electronics is working for all lanes in a race, use the electronics for the official times and placing. If the Chief Judge Electronics or a Timekeeper marks a lane on a tape or time card as a light touch, Failure of Automatic Judging and/or timing system is suspected.

25 © Copyright Swim Ontario 25 After the Meet Ensure the Referee will be available for the time required to complete the results, in the event you require his approval or decision to resolve a problem. Check with the Referee, Recorder/Scorer, and/or Office for any out-standing problems. Return all meet materials, pens, staplers, etc.
