Using starting clap boards correctly
Expert use is particularly important for making correct timing as accurate as possible. Grasp the Sport-Thieme starting clap board using both handles. Raise it above your head and open the clap board until the halves create a horizontal line. This should be accompanied by the call “On your marks!”. This is followed by “Get set”, at which point you should close the clap board halfway, creating a V shape. The last step is to clap both halves of the board together while calling out “Go!”. Runners hear the clap and start to run, whilst timekeepers can see the boards clap together and start timing.
