First launch of IWF Live Results System at Bucharest

At the 2009 Junior World Championships the IWF will launch for the first time its new technology innovation: the Live Results System.

Following the successful tests at the Youth World Championships of ChiangMai and at the Pan-American Championships of Chicago, the IWF will now implement its new Live Results at the Junior World Championships starting on 15 June 2009 in Bucharest.

As soon as competitions begin, selecting the appropriate fields in the Timetable will display the real time scoreboard or the results – depending on the current status of the competition. This service on the IWF website is provided only at events organised with the IWF Technology and Information System (TIS).
