OMEGA gets set to time the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018

Dubai, UAE, October 10, 2018:  As the world’s best young athletes compete at this year’s Youth Olympic Games, OMEGA will be recording their dreams as the event’s Official Timekeeper. The stage is set at Buenos Aires 2018 for 241 events within 32 sports and OMEGA is ready for the challenge with a renowned timekeeping experience that dates back more than 80 years.

Until October 18th, OMEGA will be behind the clock for every single second, just as it has done at 28 Olympic Games since 1932. As the world’s premier sports timekeeper, the brand will be deployed across all venues and will rely on its historic expertise and modern innovation.

To complete the job at Buenos Aires 2018, OMEGA has arrived with 80 tonnes of equipment, which includes 125 sports scoreboards, 22 TV graphics generators and 60km of copper and fibre optic cabling. To ensure every moment runs smoothly, there are also 235 timekeeping professionals and technicians who will be supported by 450 trained volunteers.

Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of OMEGA says, “The Youth Olympic Games is an incredible stage for the stars of the future. It's a true privilege for OMEGA to be here once again and we’re excited to be timing the very first results of many legendary sporting careers ahead.”

Many of the OMEGA technologies are the exact same that the brand uses at the Olympic Games. These includes the Scan’O’Vision MYRIA photofinish camera, which can take 10,000 digital images on the finish line of events, as well as starting blocks with built-in sensors that measure the slightest false start in athletics.

“Feel the Future” is the motto of Buenos Aires 2018 and youthful new events, such as climbing and roller speed skating, will also give OMEGA some timekeeping duties it has never undertaken before. In climbing, the brand will employ its famous touchpad technology. Interestingly, this will be just the second Olympic Games sport, after swimming, where athletes stop their own time. In roller speed skating, the brand will rely on many of its legacy timekeeping technologies, including the Scan’O’Vision MYRIA, lap counters and photocells  - which stop time as soon as the first tip of a skate crosses the finish line.

OMEGA has served as Official Timekeeper at all four of the previous Youth Olympic Games, which began in Singapore in 2010. Buenos Aires 2018 is just the third summer edition of the event and OMEGA is certainly looking forward to sharing the results with the world.
