OMEGA TIMES THE WORLD’S BEST TRACK AND FIELD EVENTS OMEGA has unparalleled experience in sports timekeeping. In 1932, OMEGA pocket watch chronographs were already considered the most reliable instruments available for measuring world-class performance at sporting events. OMEGA’s reputation was such that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) asked the firm to supply all sports timing devices for use at the Olympic Games to be held that year in Los Angeles. The company was happy to oblige, and delivered 30 OMEGA chronographs, accompanied by an expert watchmaker, to ensure precise timekeeping and reliable results from all the competitions. OMEGA has continued to develop and deliver state-of-the-art sports timing and measurement systems ever since, and served as Official Timekeeper at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games for the 23rd and 24th times respectively. Every year, OMEGA’s experts deploy teams of timekeeping professionals to sporting events around the world, armed with a veritable arsenal of advanced sports timekeeping and measurement equipment. Their innovative systems include starting blocks and false-start detection systems and the latest photo-finish cameras for the sprints and middle-distance events, as well as height and distance measurement devices for field disciplines. OMEGA records and displays the results with the world’s best equipment equipment OMEGA’s official timekeepers ensure timely delivery of the official results to everyone involved in the competitions they support. At the events it serves, OMEGA is also responsible for the competitor displays for the athletes and their support teams along with the public displays to spectators at each venue. The official results are also delivered in real time to broadcast, network and print media who in turn relay results and commentary to remote audiences around the world. Though each event requires a specific configuration of precisely tuned devices and systems, perhaps the most famous of OMEGA’s timekeeping inventions is the photo-finish camera. First developed for use at the London 1948 Olympic Games,

these cameras solved the problem of grouped finishes by enabling judges to separate the winners from the runners-up. The OMEGA Scan’O’Vision cameras have evolved continuously over the years and the current version, the Scan’O’Vision Star, provides more than 2000 high definition images of the participants as they cross the finish line. OMEGA and athletics While the number and variety of events make the Olympic Games the most famous, complex and challenging of world championships, OMEGA’s track and field timekeeping experts are busy every year at competitions around the world. Along with the 2010 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Barcelona, OMEGA will continue its relationship with the IAAF Diamond League, serving as Official Timekeeper at its meets in its inaugural 2010 season. OMEGA OMEGA and the Olympic Games At the Olympic Games, the biggest, most conspicuous sporting stage in the world, OMEGA’s responsibilities go well beyond measuring times and distances and keeping score. The OMEGA team is also responsible for the provision of On-Venue Results (OVR) at each venue and for the operation of competitor displays and public scoreboards. The results are also delivered directly to television for on-screen display during live broadcasts of events. In addition, to assist TV commentators during competitions, the OMEGA team provides a wealth of supplementary information, ranging from individual competitor biographies and background information to start lists and competitor rankings, updated in real time during competitions. Journalists also rely on OMEGA for printed results, and all accredited members of the press and media have ready access to an online information system kept constantly up to date by the OMEGA team throughout the Olympic Games. The OMEGA team for Beijing 2008 numbered 450 timekeeping professionals supported by 1000 locally-recruited volunteers who used more than 420 tons of timekeeping and data-handling equipment in 302 events in 28 sports at 37 different venues. At the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, OMEGA mobilized the largest timekeeping effort in the history of winter sport. Last year OMEGA extended its agreement with the International Olympic Committee through the 2020 Games.

11. BARCELONA 2010 VENUES 11.1 Olympic Stadium Lluís Companys de Montjuïc Located in the Parc de Montjuïc, the Olympic Stadium Lluís Companys de Montjuïc is the work of architect Pere Domènech i Roura and dates back to the year 1929. The stadium was the great symbol of Barcelona sporting history for decades, and after a period of abandonment and deterioration it was renovated to become the beating heart of the 1992 Olympic Games. In the 1980s, the Barcelona ’92 Organising Committee launched an international architectural contest for the complete reconstruction of the stadium. The architectural studio Correa-MilàMargarit-Buixadé was finally selected to design the management plan for Montjuïc that included the recovery of its premises. The Italian architect Vittorio Gregotti also collaborated on the work alongside his Catalan counterparts. Montjuïc was completely emptied and only the main façade was conserved; till date the original colour from over 80 years ago. The stadium can seat up to 55,000 spectators, and in its surrounding areas a ‘ring’ was shaped to house a number of sports facilities; contributing to the enormous success of the Barcelona Olympic Games. The Olympic Stadium is today a modern facility in full use and considered a five-star location by the European football union (UEFA). The European Athletics Championships Barcelona 2010 has seen a new rehabilitation project undertaken, involving the complete refit of its interior (there will be a 32,000–seat capacity for Barcelona 2010)and a new blue synthetic track. The new running track has been designed by MONDO, and identical to that fitted in the Olympic Stadium of Beijing, the latest generation Mondotrack FTX. With nine lanes, the track covers a surface area of 17,000 square metres, and is light blue in colour with its semi-circles marked in green. The championships will also see the stadium’s new gigantic screens in use for the first time to transmit all the latest information to spectators. A 9X14 metre alpha-numeric timers will be installed alongside the giant screen.

11.2 Road Events For the first time in the history of the European Athletics Championships, the Marathon and Race Walk events will be entirely held in the city centre, with the start and finish line located on Paseo Picasso, next to Ciutadella Park.

11.3 Training and Warm-up Facilities The Barcelona 2010 Organising Committee has provided the athletes with two training venues close to their team accommodation during their time in the city, at Mar Bella and Can Drag贸.

For the warm-up, athletes will use an additional two venues close to the the Estadi Olimpic; running and jumping athletes will be at Pau Negre, the same venue used during the Olympic Games in 1992. The athletes will only have to cross the street over a bridge that will give access to the Olympic Stadium. Athletes in the throwing events will be able to warm-up at the Joan Serrahima venue, also located within the Parc de Montju茂c.

17. SECURITY The European Athletics Championships Barcelona 2010 will unite 1,600 athletes from the 50 European Athletics Member Federations, who will be staying in hotels in the area from Port Olímpic to the Fòrum. Around 1,800 media professionals will be covering the championship for numerous press agencies, television channels, magazines, newspapers and websites from all over Europe, each adding their personal contribution and projection of Barcelona to the world. The Ministry of the Interior represented by the Secretary of Ρublic Safety has full jurisdiction for public security throughout Catalunya, and has undertaken the safety and correct operation of the European Athletics Championships in Barcelona with a specific Safety Management Plan (Ρlan Director de Seguridad - PDS). The plan will guarantee a pacific and ordered organisation of the competition, and maximise the security of its participants, visitors and residents. The Mosssos d’Esquadra, the local police officers responsible for civilian safety in Catalunya, have recommended a series of safety measures to ensure a secure and comfortable stay in the city for all athletes, members of the sporting community and visitors: Never leave your luggage unattended, particularly when arriving and leaving the airport, at the hotel check-in, or in crowded sports venues. In public places keep a close check on your personal belongings (bag, wallet, mobile telephone, camera …). Keep your possessions in a secure place and avoid easy access such as in pockets. It is recommended to carry any hand bags across your front, with a good clasp and at all times firmly shut. Avoid large crowds, and if you should be caught up in a large group of people, take care with brusque or pushing movements. Avoid carrying valuable items; carry the minimum amount of cash and avoid unnecessary signs of ostentation in public. When taking money out of cash machines, use well-lit machines preferably inside. Be cautious of any person around the area of a cash machine offering help. Avoid participating in any street gambling games: you may be swindled. If you are the victim of a crime Call the Mossos d’Esquadra on the 24-hour emergency number 112 and attempt to recall as many details as possible for police information. If possible when making a police report, take along any personal identification documents or registration of items that might have been lost.
