English term or phrase:intermediate points
"Interval between intermediate points 3 and 4"
Si tratta di una gara di bob: purtroppo dal contesto non capisco se si parla di due punti fisici o di punteggio, ma forse qualcuno di voi conosce meglio di me l'argomento...
Explanation: o sempl. intermedi.In una gara di bob si analizzano,anche nelle telecronache, molto attentamente i tempi intermedi, per distinguere l' abilità di guida dalla forza di spinta iniziale. ma un tc italiano direbbe solo"intervallo tra l'int.3 e il 4" sottintendendo punto
Explanation: B obsleigh events are competed using steel sleighs with steering handles and brakes over tracks of packed frozen man-made snow. The luge, in contrast, has neither handle nor brakes, being controlled by rider weight shifting.
Skeleton events were added at Salt Lake Olympic Games. Unlike Luge, Skeleton sliders run laying on their stomach.
Bobsleigh and luge races start and finish when the sleigh passes through the photo beam at the start and finish lines. Intermediate times are also taken by photo-beam units and displayed. The closely fought luge events are measured to 1/1000th second, a distinction they share only with short-track speed skating.
There are usually three to five official intermediate points where photo-beam units are installed to measure times. http://www.seiko.co.jp/winter_sports_en/bobsleigh.html
