Commit Swimming just released an application for Olympic Trials, which is expected to be the only mobile-friendly way to view heat sheets and live results.
Not only can you view heat sheets and live results anywhere, anytime, but Commit’s 2016 US Trials app also provides:
1 – SwimSwam news
Read the latest US trials news (provided by yours truly). We’ll be covering every big story coming out of Omaha, and Commit’s app makes sure SwimSwam is right at your fingertips.
2 – Olympic team & records summary
Who’s going to represent Team USA in Rio? What American, US, or World Records are falling? Track Olympic Team qualifiers and broken records with Commit. This meet will have some of the fastest swimmers in the history of our sport. The world’s watching. Don’t miss it.
3 – Athlete profiles
Search athletes by name and pull up what they’re swimming, what times they went, and what place they got. If you want to learn more about an athlete, just click on their name and you’ll see their detailed SwimSwam profile. Profiles for Michael Phelps, Nathan Adrian, Ryan Lochte, Natalie Coughlin, Caeleb Dressel, Ryan Murphy, Missy Franklin and many more are available the second you want them.
4 – Split analysis
What did Michael Phelps go out in the first 50 of his 200 fly? How fast did Katie Ledecky bring home her 800 free? You can analyze splits for every event by 50 or by 100. Heats, Semi-finals, and Finals. Reaction times? No problem, Commit’s app shows them as well.
5 – Discounts for top brands
Olympic Trials is a special event, so it deserves special discounts. Click the gift card icon on the top right of Commit’s application and get some of the biggest promotions your favorite brands have to offer. These are exclusive promo codes, so take advantage!
6 – Printable PDFs
Sometimes there’s nothing better than your old-school ways, which is why Commit’s web version makes it easy for you to switch off the “Commit view” and look at the original Omega PDFs with buttons to print or download the pages you want.
7 – 2012 results for reference
Wish this app existed four years ago during the 2012 Olympic Trials? Well that’s not a problem: Commit lets you go back in time and see how fast our sport has become. You can visit the site now and play around with the different features, which will display the 2012 Olympic Trials data until the meet start this Sunday, June 26th.
“As much as we’d love to give everything away for free, we have to at least cover our expenses so our team can keep developing innovative technology for our sport,” says co-developer Nico Gimenez when asked about price.
$4.99: For full access to every feature on web, mobile, and tablet (iOS or Android) there’s a small, one-time cost. You’ll get all that’s mentioned above, responsive support, and more. Keep in mind heat sheets sold for this meet are $40.
Also, those who pay will continue to have access to everything after trials. You can easily reference times and swimmer data through the Olympics in August and beyond.
Free: The basic web version is free. Heat sheets & results, news, promo codes, and pdfs are available on Commit’s US Trials website at no cost.
Color codes in the app
Grey: Qualifying times
Purple: Heat results
Red: Semi-final results
Blue: Final results
Data comes from Omega Timing PDFs, which only become available after the full event is over. Therefore, Commit updates at the conclusion of each event, not the conclusion of each heat.
