For the second time in a couple of weeks, I’ve watched a sprint race come down to a matter of seconds, and seen clearly how the ridiculous process of fitting an Emit brikk in its slot has made the difference between winning and losing. The latest example was Friday’s NORT event in Turku, where one second covered the first three runners. The technology just isn’t good enough. Of course better technology is available (SI?), and even better technology will be available soon, and we need to make sure it’s used so that people can take the sprint races seriously.
