Myrtha Track-Start is the new starting block designed by Myrtha Pools in order to facilitate the swimmer’s take-off and optimize competitive performance. The block is comprised of a special patented Omega platform that is compatible with the Omega Timing System as well as all other major timing system components.
The platform is designed to provide the athlete with a stable base for the “Track-Start” takeoff.
Specifically, the footrest permits swimmers to start with the back leg at a 90º angle allowing for an ideal position for the launch.
The special anti-skid platform can be adjusted to five positions according to the height of the athlete.
Myrtha Track-Start blocks are approved by F.I.N.A. and they are used in all international competitions including the Olympics and F.I.N.A. World Championships.
