In the absence of confirmation, the next classified athlete will automatically have the possibility to participate in the competition.

    Confirmation of participation in the event must be accompanied by payment of the admission fee for the on-site phase.

The training results will be corrected according to the method presented in the Judge Course 2023:

  • Valid with Penalty: these will be counted in the score by subtracting the non-reps from the result. If the score is determined by the execution time, the execution time will be increased by the value of the no rep given.
  • Invalid: the athlete has not performed the training as prescribed, has added an unacceptable number of non-reps, or the video cannot be evaluated due to framing.

The decision of the arbitration body is final.
