No games without measurement
The slogan of the BIPM (International Bureau of Weights and Measures) for 2008 is reflected in the title of the article by the CEO of this organization Andrew Wallard. Measurements are very important and concern almost all aspects of society life. As for sport, measurements are the determinants for sportsmen and play a very important role for the assessment of their results. All equipment should work properly and exclude any defects. Lots of additional factors should be also taken into consideration, for example time, height, distance are the elements of athletics, but temperature of water in the swimming pool can also make an influence on the results of a sportsman therefore it should be exactly measured and so on. Sports metrology requires main rules compliance of fine measurement.
