How to attach your timing chip

By Maja Lorentzen, communications manager

In your participant envelope, you will find both a chip and a strap.

  • The strap should be threaded through the elongated holes in the middle of the chip.
  • The logo on the strap should face upwards as shown in the illustration.
  • Secure the strap with the chip around your wrist with the Velcro closure around your wrist.
  • REMEMBER to return the chip in the finish area after you have finished swimming.

The timing chip MUST NOT be covered by the wetsuit, but should be worn against the skin or on top of the wetsuit.
