This year has been all about creating new memories and reaching new achievements in organizing events, competing in events and following the live action. We've tried to make a timeline with highlights, but that would take way too many mats and decoders. So, to make up for that, have a look at our digital timeline with some of the records that have been set in 2022!

One of our MYLAPS milestones this year was our 40th anniversary. All these years of new innovations, progress and teamwork were properly celebrated with the entire company during a trip in the Netherlands. Next to that we shared our best stories of the past years with you. On to the next 40!
So many competitions, events, and happy faces! Beside the regular running races like a 5K or marathon, there have also been some races that are more out of the ordinary! Two events with a lot of attendees:
An event Down Under with record breaking numbers. The City 2 Surf concluded its 50th physical event after two years of virtual editions. The run brings participants from Sydney city to Bondi Beach. Participants received a total of 3 split times; Start to Heartbreak Hill, Heartbreak Hill, Heartbreak Hill to Bondi Beach .
We hear what you think: Why would MYLAPS technology be used to time an event without fastest times or winners? Ok, we've got you a little there. In June, our BibTag system was succesfully used for the Guinness World Record for the largest boxing class in the world, in Mexico City. The organizers could easily count the number of attendees with the BibTag system, and there were a lot of them!

Motorsport is super exciting: pushing the limits of vehicles, drivers, and racing officials. We all know this is not without risk. That’s why we have developed X2 Race Control, a fully integrated solution to control all the action happening on the track, using real-time data (GPS location, vehicle data) to help you enhance your race control duties. We are proud that many circuits around the world are adopting our system by executing installments of one or more pillars. This year, the X2 Race Control LED Panels have been homologated by the FIA/FIM, making the system even more accessible for racing series. We are excited for for more installments in 2023!
This year, more and more people found their way to the Speedhive App. Whether it was to upload results, analyze track sessions or fans following the live action, more than 1.000.000 people have downloaded our App. A milestone we are proud to have achieved, together.
In 2023 we're aiming to present you some new innovations in both hardware and software. What exactly is still a secret, but we've got some exciting novelties in store.
Don't be fooled by these red lines of text. 2022 was also the year in which we took new steps to contribute to a better world. As the global market leader in sports timing, with innovation in our DNA, we have a responsibility to consider our impact on the environment, society and governance.
We're excited for January when we're meeting our active partners from the Americas at our Conference in Cancun.
