The finish time is the time from when the race starts to when the athlete crosses the finish line.
The chip time is the time from when the athlete crosses the start mat to when the athlete crosses the finish mat. The time from the race start to when the start mat is crossed is not included in the chip time. Because of this the chip time will typically be less than the finish time.
VO2 max (Estimated)
In brief, the Vo2 max value is a measure of the maximum volume of oxygen an athlete can consume.
As you increase your effort during a race, the consumption of oxygen will increase. However, your body has a maximum level of oxygen it can consume. This maximum is called Vo2 max. Your Vo2 max is mainly determined by your genes, but with training you can usually increase your Vo2 max by between 5% to 20%.
Your Vo2 max is not the only factor that determines what you can achieve in a race. However, it is a good indicator of how much you can achieve and in what shape you are. To calculate your exact Vo2 max you need laboratory equipment, the number we calculate is only an estimate, calculated on the basis of your result.
