Color Coding For Race Results Re-Created by JAMCO
Race result reports produced by JAMCO from reported Olympic racing times depict crews at each 500 meter interval, using graphics and color conventions to show position and relative movement of the individual crews in each interval of the race.
Movements by crews during each 500 meter interval are highlighted by different
colors. Gold (yellow) crews are closing on the leader in the current 500.
Silver (light blue) crews are closing on the second place crew, but falling
further behind the leader. Bronze (orange) crews are closing on the third
place crew, but falling further behind the leader and the second place crews.
crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.
