Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je says the Taipei Universiade committee should seek
compensation from the maker of a faulty electronic timer used during the games.
The timer malfunctioned during the women’s 500 meter sprint in the roller sports competition. Sporting officials have said that because of the malfunction, they will not recognize a world record set during the event by Taiwanese skater Chen Ying-chu.
On Saturday, Taipei’s mayor said that since the city contracted the maker to provide the timer, it is within the city’s rights to expect compensation for the fault. However, he said that the city may only be entitled to a maximum of NT$20,000 (US$660), an amount he said will not have any real impact on the company. [SOURCE]
