Athletics WA (AWA) acknowledges and apologises for problems encountered during the State Championships on Friday night with some track results.
This issue was compounded by intermittent faults with the wind gauge and other technical equipment problems. Without itemising the problems we were able to manually correct some of the issues on the night. Compounding the problem was that a number of key AWA officials were absent, whilst officiating at the Oceania Masters Championship in New Zealand.
Currently, AWA is training and developing a new photo-finish team and were able to add additional technical support to the team on Saturday and Sunday competitions. This resulted in a more effective results system.
AWA accepts full responsibility for the problem and fully supports the efforts of all our volunteers officials.
If you have queries or require further information please contact myself or Stephen Stingemore (Operations Manager).
