NY Triathlon and Accenture
Well, after months of waiting and having them say that the event was closed I was registered in the NYC Triathlon, that was the good news, the bad news was the plans that I made could not be broken so I must wait till next year, I keep telling myself that I will be better prepared. Oh well, the other good news is that Accenture has some cool technology that can track the athlete via cell phone or website, very much like the sailing post that I added earlier. These are some things that the tracking will include.
On July 10th, 2005 take part in the excitement and see how your athlete is performing during the Ford New York City Triathlon!
The athlete tracking capabilities will include:
Finish Line Video - for the first time ever you can view a live stream of the finish line during the race. Once the race is completed you will also be able to see a 30 second video clip of your athlete crossing the finish line!
Interactive Map - during the race you will be able to view your athlete's split times and his/her progress on an interactive map.
Athlete Statistics - once the results are in, you will be able to see your athlete's statistics such as placings and average speed.
You can track up to three athletes. The technology is getting better and better to be able to launch my next IDEA, any Venture firms that are interested you can contact me through this site.
To all the Triathletes participating in the event good luck.
