Wind Readings

Wind Readings apply to Outdoor Meets only and for Running Events less than or equal to 200 meters.

 

To record a wind reading, click on Results by Name or Results by Event. Then click on the event and appropriate column and enter the wind result as listed below.

 

Readings are normally in meters per second, such as tail wind of 0.8 or headwind of -1.2.  All wind readings default to -0.0.  To record a zero wind reading, enter +0.0.  If the wind reading is -0.0, it is assumed there was no reading, and reports will show NWI for no wind information.  Wind readings should be rounded to the next higher tenth of a meter per second.  For example, 1.36 is 1.4 and -1.36 is -1.3.

 

Wind Readings will be displayed in the Top Marks Report, the Meet Browser, and the Meet Results Report.  If you do not wish to show Wind Readings, uncheck the box.

 

 

Results by Event

This method of entering meet results lists each event that has been set up for the meet with the corresponding eligible athletes or relays for each event selected.

 

First enter the Team for which these results apply. If they generally apply to the same team for each meet, we would recommend you set up Favorite Filters so that the team you choose will be automatically displayed each time you want to enter results.  Click Here for information on how to do this.  The meet results will be associated with this Team even though the athletes may not currently be on that Team.

 

Individual Events

Pick an event, and TFTM will list all of the eligible athletes for that event. You can enter an event number, use the event scroll list, click on the arrow keys to go to the Previous or Next event, or press F4 for Previous event or F5 for the Next event.  For example, pick a Men's 800 meter Run, and TFTM will list all of the men in your Database.

 

TFTM supports up to four "rounds" for each event:  Finals, Prelims, Semi Finals, or Quarter Finals. You can customize showing the Finals, Prelims, Semi Finals, or Quarter Finals columns by selecting the appropriate buttons above the grid. To enter a result, position your cursor under the Mark column in the row of the athlete for which you want to enter results and then enter results either in the format "12345" or "1:23.45" for times, 1298 or 12.98 for a Metric field event mark, or 60150 or 6-0150 or 6'01.50 or 6'01.50" or 6'4" or 6'4 for an English field event mark.  You may enter DQ for Disqualified. See Marks for more on entering results. Specify the entry as Exhibition by entering an "x" as a prefix to the time - for example, "x1:23.45".  Click on the DQ column to designate the result as a DQ, and you can still enter the athlete's mark if you wish in the appropriate column (Final, Prelim, Semis, or Quarter Finals).  Optionally enter the athlete's Place, Points, and the Wind Reading in the appropriate columns for each round..  The Place, Points, and Wind Reading for each result will be displayed in the Meet Results Report for this meet.
