Just reading through the Paris Marathon thread in this forum I saw it stated that the timing at the FLM is not accurate because it "starts from the gun". I took that to mean that everyone's time starts when the gun goes off, and the chip simply records the finish time. Can that really be right? I thought the point of the chip was to record both the true start and finish time (i.e. over the relevant mats), as in the Venice run I recently did. Can anyone shed any light on this?
