    For the time differences that are being mentioned by many coaches, are they contrasting the finishline clock with the published time? Or are these based on manager times versus the published times?

    The finishline clock is not necessarily linked to the timing system. They are usually just started manually by someone standing next to the clock. The difference from manager times to "official" times could potentially be explained away by saying that the managers are off. However, many of the managers do this every meet and I do not think that there are seemingly so many managers from different teams suddenly becoming consistantly incompetent by getting the same 3 seconds difference.

    I did not have any missing runners and did not have any managers collecting finishline times to be able to compare to published results. It does seem to me that there are a great number of questions that need to be addressed by someone.
