The eSyGo (easygo), the perfect adapted timing system for the Go4O exercises, is now a fact thanks to the partnership between SPORTident and Go4orienteering. A number of series can already be done with this timing set and more existing series will be adapted in the coming months.
The big advantage is that the runners don’t need to write down the numbers anymore and so the execution speed increases (physical competence increases). De participant receives an electronic Go4O chip. The control numbers are replaced by electronic Go4O numbers, nice looking little boxes with a hole that needs to be punched. The runners punch their Go4O chip in the little hole and the number is automatically registered onto the chip. The running time is determined by an electronic start and finish.
This offers the opportunity to enhance and make the exercises even more attractive, more pleasant and more competitive. Cheating is no longer possible, the same control can be used more than once in one course. There is no longer a limitation to 7 controls but is expanded to 20 controls in some exercises.
An automatic control of the correct execution is up until now possible with the PC and the freeware program “EasyGec” (see also the news about the WOD). Later this year an App will be available for the use with a Smartphone. All results are stored and can be evaluated later on.
The eSyGo consists of a basic set and an extensional set. With the basic set al the exercises up until 24 control numbers can be done, 25 Go4O chips are included. The extensional set has 12 extra controls, 3 extra starts and 1 extra finish.
The eSyGo can also be used for many other activities. It is ideal for running exercises (shuttle run, …), mixed activities (run-bike), and so on. In short all activities where time is essential and where control points are important. (e.g. to avoid cheating)
To summarize all the advantages of the eSiGo:
– More fascinating exercises
– Higher execution speed
– Automatic control of the correct execution
– Evaluation possible after the lesson/training
– Suitable for other activities
