Additional delay before backstroke races (schedule calculation)

Post by jakub » 11 Nov 2018, 17:01

According to my observation during multiple competitions at various levels, the time interval between races is substantially longer for backstroke events compared to other strokes. That's a case especially when backstroke ledges are used and/or swimmers are asked to leave the pool before the start of the next race, while they stay in the water before the start of races in freestyle, breaststroke or butterfly. Because of that, the schedule works perfectly for all the other events, but as soon as backstroke races start, the competition falls behind the schedule.

My suggestion is to add another configuration option for the settings of schedule calculation: delay before the backstroke race.

Best regards,
Jakub
