Canoe Kayak Canada partners with ImmediaC to continue using app launched at 2016 National Championships
Paddling fans will now have a handy way to access up to the minute results at national sprint competitions. ImmediaC has become Canoe Kayak Canada’s digital app sponsor and will relaunch the app originally developed for the 2016 Canadian Sprint Canoe Kayak Championships. The app will be used for Sprint National Team Trials, Canada Cups and National Championships.
“We are excited about our continued involvement in helping get real time race results from the tower into the hands of athletes, coaches and spectators,” said ImmediaC’s John Leahy.
As athletes cross the line, their results will show up right away as the app is connected to the finish line software. Spectators can easily view a list of upcoming races and can even search all the times a particular athlete is racing. The app is currently only available for iPhone and the developers are working on an Android application. The app’s full functionality is also available via the mobile web.
“This app repersents a big step forward in making our sport more spectator friendly by bringing results instantly to fans in the stands and across the country,” said Ian Mortimer, Canoe Kayak Canada’s Director of Development. “immediaC is a valuable partner in engaging our national audience through this technology and speading that excitement of a boat-shoot-finish to our community coast to coast.”
Note: In any instance where the app and the draw posted on the CKC website have discrepancies, the version on the CKC website will be upheld.
