It’s a supremely convenient device that helps me check my emails, surf the Web, read books or get any work done via the Internet, adding productivity, portability and convenience to the way I live or conduct business.

Peter Hürzeler | We are 20 years ahead of the federations

What are the major improvements you have made in terms of timing systems for this Olympics?

Our goal is always simple. To provide 100% service to the Games. And to make no mistakes and give the right results. Exactly what we do for any other event. We do nothing special for the Olympics.
