GE triVIEWER is a result for the UK masses!

14

General Electric (GE) has launched triVIEWER, a new and free online tool that enables triathletes to visualise their races and compare their performances against the field, friends… or even opponents!

This latest branded offering from GE, which is fully integrated into the Tri247 events and results database, will certainly engage with triathletes across the UK and once again reaffirms GE’s commitment to support UK triathlon.

GE is a Worldwide Olympic Partner, Elite Partner of the GB Triathlon Team and sponsor of many of the UK’s leading triathlons, including the British Triathlon Super Series events and the Hyde Park round of the ITU World Championship Series.

GE’s triVIEWER will enable participants in most future British Triathlon Federation (BTF) affiliated triathlon events to re-live races post event. Even more powerful, triVIEWER enables triathletes to run online race simulations against the full archive of Tri247 results – with results going back as far as 1994.

A further additional element is triVIEWER+ with exactly the same functionality as triVIEWER, but with the added twist of replaying your race against the actual course map!

GE’s triVIEWER went into action at this past weekend’s GE Blenheim Triathlon, and competitors were able to watch their races evolve and compare their performance against competitors from other waves, the elite wave and even high profile triathletes such as Jenson Button or his girlfriend Jessica Michibata.

GE’s triVIEWER, powered by ZumTri technology and available at  tri247.com,allows triathletes to:

  • View race results in graphical form (triathlons, duathlons and aquathlons)
  • Watch a personalised post-race animation of their race
  • Compare their race to that of friends… or rivals!
  • Share their race with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter and email
  • Analyse their race through additional graphs and charts
  • See how their results compare to the race winner or celebrities
  • Track how all their club-mates performed in a race

Simon Langford, GE’s Communications Director for the London 2012 Olympic Games, said, “We hope that GE’s triVIEWER will provide a fun and interactive service to triathletes in the UK to enhance their post-race experience.

“It forms just one part of our wider commitment to the sport in the UK. We hope to contribute to improving athletes’ overall race experiences and drive personal bests, whether this be assisting in their preparation via our training videos on Facebook, providing a training tool in triTRACK, supporting the top events or helping to improve the post-race experience with triVIEWER.”
