Start another thread about how good/bad the SAAL system is and the rest of us can avoid and enjoy reading about what’s happening on the track in other threads.
A forum devoted to track events from 60m to the 2 mile. Mainly pro but also news from local, national and international sprint & middle distance competitions.
Be assured that every system will measure and interpret data differently. All data is subject to the surface it was run on and the conditions in which it was run and the subjective adjustments made.
Currently, the VAL has one set adjustment for winds of all speeds and all sprint distances run, and the experienced and educated know that as wind speeds increase this adjustment becomes very inaccurate. The distance run is also ignored by the VAL when it makes its adjustment.
My question - what is the best way to measure track and wind differences for different distances (70m to 200m) ….because that's where the real thinking starts.
I have a solution but what is yours?
