OMEGA renews as official timekeeper


OTTAWA – Renewing a relationship that has been ongoing since 1997, OMEGA will continue to be the official timing system of Swimming Canada through 2016.

OMEGA is the official timekeeper at all Swimming Canada events.

“Having OMEGA provide world-leading technical support to what is clearly the best timing system in the world ensures that our events are run at the absolute highest level possible,” said Chris Wilson, Swimming Canada’s director of marketing, events and communications.

The partnership also includes naming of Swimming Canada’s annual Big Splash Awards for Male and Female Swimmer of the Year, as well as the corresponding coach awards. Each winner receives a luxury timepiece from the Swiss watch manufacturer.

“We have been impressed by how hard Swimming Canada has worked to ensure the sport’s growth and popularity in Canada,” said OMEGA President Stephen Urquhart.

“We are particularly pleased to have the opportunity to extend our partnership with them and look forward to resuming our timekeeping activities at Canada Swimming’s major events in the year ahead.”
