Athletics, one of the most exciting events, will kick off with an electronic starting gun supported by unique censoring techniques to monitor foul starts. Photo finish cameras that operate at a hustle of 5000 frames per second will be in use to record results with maximum meticulousness, it said.
Electronic Distance Measuring (EDM) tools will be used for short put, javelin throws and jumps for accuracy in the fortnight-long event, to be held in seven districts across the state, it said.
