As the Olympic Games have evolved over time, Omega’s own excellence in timekeeping has continued to grow. Omega’s timekeeping has evolved to become a highly-sophisticated system that leaves no result in doubt. At the 2012 London Olympics, Omega introduced futuristic equipment including new starting blocks used by sprinters and short distance runners; the innovative Swimming Show that instantly ranks the top three finishers in the pool; and the high-precision Quantum Timer used in athletics and water sports that has an enhanced resolution ofone millionth of a second. It has also introduced the light and electronic sound ‘starting pistol’ with its bright red colour and the OMEGA Scan’O’Vision MYRIA that captures 10,000 frames per second in a photofinish.
