My post a few days ago about how the USATF is letting “corporate greed” decide who places 3′rd in the Women’s 100m race and goes on to compete at the 2012 London Olympics for the USA was met with a lot of controversy and some people saying I am crazy.
You can read the blog here and decide for yourself: http://earthzebra.com/2012/06/24/corporate-greed-decides-2012-usa-olympic-trials-womens-100m-finals-race/
HERE IS PROOF:
In the 2012 USATF Rules they clearly spell out how “Timing” is suppose to go down!
**** Page 89, Rule #165 Timing ****
So, how do you define “automated timing”. There are two parts to it.
A.) The first part basically clocks the time component. This is the most precise Timing System we have and is very precise and is considered the most accurate of all ways to time a Track & Field race event. It’s so accurate it can clock to 0.001 (a thousandth of a second) of a difference between competitors! This is the reason the USATF has NEVER HAD A TIE!!!
LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN….THIS IS THE MOST EXACT AND UNDISPUTED TECHNOLOGY ACCEPTED BY TRACK & FIELD ALL OVER THE WORLD! ONE THOUSANDTH OF A SECOND!!!!!! NEVER IN ANY COUNTRY HAS THEIR BEEN A “TIE” WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY!!!!!!!! Hello USA FRAUD!
Here is the USATF Rule on how this version of this to happen:
Well, it recorded the two times correctly between Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix to .001 of a second as it does at every major meet in the world and as the meet Official Timer Person(s) posted on the Scoreboard, and USATF.org posted on their results page on the internet. That should have been it. Race decided. That’s it, done. The USA Women’s 100M Olympic Trials event should have been over. Why anyone would further inspect it is ….obvious! The “sugar runner” did not qualify and $$$$$$$ panics all the track “big wigs”! This involves big money for the USATF and many others.
(I can’t find the image of the scoreboard or USATF.org Live Results page – conveniently erased!)…. but there was a .001 one thousandths difference between Allyson and Jeneba, thus at the time Jeneba Tarmoh was declared the third place winner based on the “Automated Timing clock component which measures to .001 of an second.
**** Now lets move onto Page 92 of the USATF Rules and Video Timing! ****
This is where the USATF is trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes and commit FRAUD so that the greedy money hungry entities will still support the sport!
The second part of “electronic timing” is Video Timing. This is where the camera takes something like 3,000 frames a second (on good camera’s) and pieces them together drawing a line as each athletes torso crosses the finish line. The problem with the Video Timing is it’s only good for 0.01 (a hundredth of a second). Compared to .001 (a thousandth of second) with the time clock.
Here is the rule and a photo to help make all Video Timing clear:
Two things noteworthy in the USATF Video Timing Rules…..
A.) It only measures to .01 (a hundredth of a second), compared to the more accurate Automated clock time which is accurate to .001 (a thousandth of a second).
B.) According to the USATF own rules they clearly state that the Video is “intended to be a backup” to the Automated clock timing.
**** CONCLUSIONS ****
Well it leads to many questions which I’m the only one asking and have the balls to ask them!!!!!!!!!
1.) The official “field” timer declared Jeneba the winner clearly because the Automated clock time said she won 3′rd by .001 second. #FACT
2.) The UATF.org website updated their Live Results to Jeneba won 3′rd on their website posting the same time difference between Jeneba and Allyson by .001 seconds as on the stadium scoreboard. #FACT
3.) Jeneba was allowed to go through the celebrations of winning 3′rd and take part in the Press conference as the 3′rd place finisher headed to the Olympics! This had to be at least an hours time. #FACT
4.) The USATF Rules clearly say the Automated clock time will take precedence over all other times including Video times which should only be used as a back up, unless the official timer can prove the equipment failed. #ItDidNotFail The Automated time clock which can measure to .001 (one thousandth of a second), posted the real times and Jenabe won 3′rd by .001 of a second! #LiveWithIt The Video timing system can not match the same level of time measurement as the clock can.
5.) Who is the person(s) who decided to change the time to a tie? Compared to the “On the field ruling” that Jeneba won 3′rd????????????????????? This person needs to be prosecuted by law enforcement or certainly questioned. This is possibly Fraud. This is possibly Conspiracy. This is possibly Collusion.
6.) If Allyson had been the athlete who was .001 ahead, would the same “Reversal of Accurate Results” been done? I say, no way! This is only happening because the Corporate Cash Cow didn’t make the team in this event!
7.) It clearly says in the rules that the Automated Timing should be recorded to .001 of a second! Period! What the USATF is doing, is IGNORING this Rule. They are completely dismissing this rule and relying only on the Video Rule of .01 time measurement. YOU DON’T GET TO #KANGAROOCOURT WHAT RULES YOU DECIDE TO USE. YOU CAN NOT USE .01 WHENEVER CONVENIENT TO THE USATF!!!!! DO YOU THINK WE ARE STUPID? YES, YOU DO!
8.) Who are the people involved in Ignoring their own rule that Times should be based on .001 of a second
When something stinks like you just stepped on DogSh*t, you suspect it to be the neighbors dog that came over and sh*t on your lawn. But in this case, it’s not the neighbor’s dog, it our own USATF who taking a dump on us all and especially Jeneba Tarmoh, the real victim in this debacle and potential FRAUD!
