Queensland South Coast Region Records
Gold Coast & Southern Region Records as of 20th November 2020
NOTE: Some of our meets are timed using Timing Gates. Although this electronic system is extremely accurate to the 100th of a second they are not recognized by the IAAF as an official timing system for records. However the GCMA committee have agreed to include these times in our local record. These records will be marked as Gate Timed and will not supersede any existing electric (photo finish) time unless it is bettered by more than 0.24 of a second. A wind gauge must also used and must have a reading no greater than +2.0

Information About Masters Records
RECORDS: World, Australian and Queensland Records for Sprints up to and including 400 metres, are not allowed unless Electronic Timing is used. For all events longer than 1500 metres, the Competitor is required to have a Lap Scorer for a Record. Lap scoring sheets are to be handed in.
Hand Timing: Competitors who think they may break a track record in events longer than 400 Metres, should ask the Head Timekeeper to have three watches on their Run or Walk. The three times are to be noted on the Result Sheets with the middle time rounded up to a tenth of a second and listed as the result.
Three watches are not required for Electronically Timed Events. (Except as back-up watches in case of a malfunction) For Sprints and Jumps, a Wind Gauge is required. For Throws and Jumps, a Steel Tape for World and Australian Records is required.
Queensland, Australian and World Records set in QMA Competition or any other Official Competition which is attended by the Statistician will be noted and recorded. A Member may set a Masters Record (consistent with the above conditions), during any other Recognised Competition such as QA Interclub or Country Events or any Competition where the Statistician is not in attendance, which is conducted by Registered Officials.
