No way would that translate to 11.9

I know the official conversion is 0.24 but in reality it is more like 0.3 at best amd more likely 0.4 or 0.5. I have FAT timed meets where we had backup hand timers and they were consistently 0.3-0.5 seconds too fast and sometimes worse than that.

Most people are slow to start their watch and then anticipate the finish and stop the watch early. You can't trust hand times at all


Thanks. I agree with you. I was being generous even though deep down I know it should be .3-.5 slower.
