TOPSEC AT THE FRENCH SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Since the 9th of June in France, the aquatic centres have reopened to the public and the sports events can finally be back. The first major swimming event of the season was of course the French Swimming Championships at the Odyssée aquatic centre in Chartres from 15 to 20 June 2021.
Thanks to our technical partnership with the French Swimming Federation we were privileged to attend.
For our teams, it was another opportunity to meet with our partners in a friendly, chlorinated setting. It was also an opportunity to show that we too are back and in great shape!
Despite a limited audience due to sanitary measures, the atmosphere and the quality of the organization were there for this big competition.
We had the chance to visit the backstage area of this event: the arrival of the swimmers, the press corner and the area where everyone can watch their performances on screens. Finally, we entered the TV control truck for the live broadcast on Bein Sport channels. Nothing is left to chance: screens on each side are operated by experienced technicians, the sound is meticulously controlled and a calibration (color levelling) of each camera is done, for an optimal rendering.
Our Swind Express swimming equipment vending machines can be found in the lobby of this swimming pool, ice rink and sports hall.
Our turnkey service enables all aquatic centres to ensure that the regulations (mandatory swimming caps and shorts) and hygiene measures are respected on a daily basis and to provide an additional service to their users without any management on their part.
