Finding new ways to engage users and get them as much information as we can through the live results platform has been a big focus of mine for a while. Since I started working at FloSports I've had great support in this area and we continue to find ways to enhance the user experience. I think this is just a first step of many in the right direction as we find ways to enhance the sport for the running community as a whole.”

Cody Branch is the leading timer and graphics engineer in the sport of track and field. Being involved in track and field timing since age 12, he started working for the high profile timing group Flash Results in 2007.
