For more than 160 years, OMEGA’s pioneering spirit has taken us to the moon, helped conquer the oceans’ depths and, for more than a century, given us the opportunity to time the world’s most important sporting events including 24 Olympic Games. OMEGA’s unparalleled involvement in sports timing has led to a long list of innovations in swimming timekeeping technology including the famous "touch pads" placed at each end of the pool and the new starting blocks. We are unflinchingly dedicated to ensuring that the world’s most talented athletes are supported by flawless timekeeping and data handling services.
In addition to its role as Official Olympic Timekeeper, OMEGA is responsible for timing such events as the FINA World Championships and the FINA Swimming World Cup. The excellence of the world's great swimmers creates ever-greater challenges for our timekeepers who are thrilled to work closely with FINA to ensure that every record-setting performance is perfectly timed.
