Head of Sales, China – MYLAPS

MYLAPS Sports Timing

Founded in 1982, MYLAPS Sports Timing was originated with the merge of two Dutch companies- AMB i.t. and ChampionChip. The brand has revolutionized the world of sports timing with ground-breaking innovations and set the standard ever since. MYLAPS invented automatic sports timing and timing system for mass running events; thousands of events and millions of athletes that previously used stopwatches and thumbs to keep track of results now rely on MYLAPS technology.

MYLAPS offers a wide range of timing systems and services. All the solutions have been developed to suit the needs of professional timers, event organizers, track and club owners and federations, as well as individual racers and athletes. MYLAPS’ products enhance the experience for all sports categories, from professional to amateur level, from small to high/density events.

MYLAPS systems support registration, identify individual racers and athletes, determine their start, finish and intermediate times, collect performance data, calculate rankings and publish the results. Besides that, MYLAPS offer value-added participant and event services to boost the sports experience.

In November 2018, MYLAPS EventApp used at the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon 2018 has been voted ‘Best Sports Digital Platform of the Year’.
