CIS for Hong Kong 27/05/2014

Athletes' Profile A Commentator Information System (CIS) provides the most up-to-date information, results and statistics for journalists in general - and in particular for those doing the commmentaries to a broadcast.

Ahead of the GrandSlam Hong Kong, WDSF rolls out its very own CIS, with essential information on the event and the protagonists made available in a consolidated document as well as online.

Even if the athletes themselves will most likely never get to see the data themselves - for reasons of privacy and data protection -  they are called upon to collaborate by providing at least some personal information for their media profiles. It could take as little as two minutes and it can be done online, by logging in with the athletes' MIN, but it needs to be done. The couples dancing in the Hong Kong GrandSlam will shortly receive a message from WDSF Communications advising them to complete their profiles prior to the first round.

Who's dancing in Hong Kong? Well, from now on the preliminary lists of participants in GrandSlams will get published a lot earlier too ...
