About Wavelight Technologies.

The Wavelight story

In 1976 Jos Hermens (NED) attacked the one hour world record. He used 2 lights, on the start finish, and half way to control a perfect even pace during his one hour run. Two volunteers manually switched on the light every 68.5 seconds for 52.5 laps. This is how Jos Hermens broke the world record with a distance of 20 kilometers and 944 meter.

After his professional career Jos started Global Sports Communication, todays leading athlete management agency which represents the likes of Eliud Kipchoge, Sifan Hassan, Kenenisa Bekele, Joshua Cheptegei, Faith Kipyegon and Joshua Cheptegei, among many other greats. With Global Sports Communication, Jos always focussed on innovation and improving the sport. Together with Bram Som, former European champion (800 meters) and renowned pacemaker in the Diamond League tour, they were the ideal team to innovate athletics once again. The pair started Wavelight Technologies and introduced the most cutting-edge digital pacing system to enhance races and trainings for athletes on all levels.
