To time correctly using the Multisport tag, be sure that the athletes place their tags according to the following instructions.
- The velcro with the tag should be placed 1 or 2 centimeters above the ankle.
- The velcro should be wrapped around the leg as close to the foot as possible and never above the knee.
- The tag should always be placed in the vertical position, exactly how it is fixed in the neoprene belt.
The Multisport tag can also be placed on the wrist for open water competitions in which the finish line is situated above the swimmers. They must touch the line with their hand as they pass. In these cases, they must also touch the line with the hand that has the tag attached.
