SPORT Technologies has in collaboration with Global Sports Communications developed a ‘digital rabbit’ for individual and group athletes, that works as a visual time guidance aid at athletics tracks. The #WAVELIGHT is an electronic pace-setter that sets a different time dimension and guides runners on their time, speed and interval. The desired PACE is always in sight and provides the athlete with continuous information and motivation. Easy to install on both existing and new athletics tracks, the #WAVELIGHT comprises of 400 LED lights installed in the drainage covers. Each light will display four colours, linked to the starting gun and the time, accurate to the millisecond, and the programmed pace. The revolutionary system offers a high light level in stadiums. Visible to all the spectators in the stadium is also of clear enough quality for TV broadcasts.
The #WAVELIGHT was officially approved by the IAAF during the FBK Games (The Netherlands) in June 2018/2019. During competitions, World, Olympic and personal records are shown on screens to spectators in real-time, ensuring an unbeatable experience for everyone watching. #WAVELIGHT makes everything visible, keeping the crowd’s attention as they watch athletes keep track of the lights. Will they overtake it? Will they smash their record? #WAVELIGHT ensures no one misses any of the action.
