In October 2015 the IAAF announced a new “Olympic Athletics Dividend” program that gives local federations $25,000 a year to help with track & field program development. That means your national Member Federation will have access to $100,000 in funds over the next four years. According to IAAF President Sebastian Coe, the goal of the Dividend program is to help local federations “in designing and implementing structured and sustainable projects to develop athletics in their countries.”

“The idea of this dividend is to help fund projects such as those involving construction, refurbishment or maintenance of facilities; purchase or hire of equipment; preparation and training of athletes, coaches and team officials including travel support; staging of national and regional competitions; and the delivery of development and talent identification programmes in schools and clubs.” – Sebastian Coe

For a limited time, Lynx is offering a 50% match on any Dividend funds used toward the purchase of a FinishLynx athletics package. Packages contain everything you need to produce fully automatic timing and can be customized to meet your needs.

How does your local federation plan to use its dividends? If the goal is recruit and train elite athletes and staff members for the national stage, we highly recommend investing in a world-class FinishLynx timing system. The IAAF requires F.A.T. for championship events.  Timing your athletes with photo-finish cameras provides elite-level training and access to IAAF certified results. And training your members how to use FinishLynx could qualify them to work on major IAAF athletics events in the future. The benefits for your Federation include:

  • Capture IAAF certified times to submit for world records
  • Train staff how to time & administer elite-level meets
  • Give young athletes access to world-class timing & training technology
  • Access the same photo-finish cameras used at international championships

Why Put Your IAAF Dividend Toward a FinishLynx System?

FinishLynx photo-finish timing systems are the most popular track & field timing system in the world. Our cameras are used on more finish lines than any other timing system.
