Timing at the Winter Olympics

Today we were lucky enough to have George(Teddy and Maggie’s) dad speak to us about timing of events to determine the winner. He brought along his electronic starter and photo finish camera and explained how they work.
It was interesting to hear about his special skills and the importance of officials at sporting events to ensure that they are fair for all competitors.
It was interesting and we would like to thank him for giving up his time to share his knowledge with us.
We even surprised him with a video we found of him officiating at the Sydney Olympics.
