1 The Integration of Electronic Timing in Speed Training Christopher Glaeser

2 Trends in Electronic Timing Transition from periodic testing to training Integration of timing into speed training Olympic and World Champion medalists, elite track teams High Schools and Colleges Ballistic events: Sprints, hurdles, horizontal jumps, pole vault Accels, fly-in sprints, hurdle splits, tempo runs

3 Benefits of Electronic Timing Can increase arousal of athletes (speed workouts) Can motivate athletes (tempo runs) Immediate feedback can reinforce good technique (posture, relaxation, …) Provides Intervention (focus on quality over quantity) Increased accuracy of assessment (tempo and recovery) Coach can focus on other tasks (stand anywhere, watch anything)

4 Freelap Timing System

5 Benefits of Freelap Can time multiple athletes simultaneously Extremely versatile No tripods that require extra lanes Long battery life Rugged, water resistant, transmitters do not blow over Easy setup Accurate, wireless, expandable Lower cost compared to laser beams Small and compact for storage and travel

6 Freelap Watch Sprint belt for increased accuracy Store 765 splits organized into files Files are date and time stamped Data can be downloaded to Windows PC using IrDA USB dongle

7 Freelap Transmitters Tx Touch for block starts and three-point stance Tx Junior for splits Tx Touch is optional; Tx Junior can be used for fly-in starts

8 Versatility Example: 4x100 relay Relay leg selection Time 35 m fly (low hurdle marks) on the straight; repeat for turn Select legs based on performances in straight versus turn Do some speed work on the turn with baton Some athletes will hesitate for incoming athlete Time athlete in exchange zone without incoming athlete Compare exchange zone baseline with incoming athlete

9 Sprint Calculator Based on research by Bundle, Hoyt, Weyand High-speed running performance: a new approach to assessment and prediction Primary focus is practical coaching application Web-based implementation Online User Guide Sample Data Set

10 Sprint Calculator (continued) ASR uses a short and long sprint to calculate all other distances Can be used for Intervention (quality versus quantity) ASR algorithm is based on fly-in sprints Calculator will convert block starts to fly-in sprints Can use times from track meets Can use any distance (e.g. high and low hurdle marks) Can predict new long distance

11 Sprint Calculator (continued) Work in Progress New features to be included with future releases Questions, comments, and feedback are welcomed
