Team Switzerland
Team, Test 1

Equipment malfunction. Miles instead of meters – held back by TO for 45 seconds. Video proof provided.

Partly Approved.

Video checked but of poor quality so cannot justify 45 seconds. 

Based on discussions with TO and Head TO decision was made that 15 seconds will be deducted from the time.  Those 15 seconds can be justified and seen on the video. Time adjusted to 19.59,19.

Team Andorra
Team, Test 3

Athlete getting ok from TO to start working, but getting a no-rep from head TO for false start.

Rejected.

Intervention by HTO because the athlete did not cross the finish line and the other athlete had already left.

One of the tasks of the HTO is to intervene when the TO fails. Athlete was given a justified no-rep for leaving too early. 

Nov 25 (Sat)

Elise Nilsson, Sweden
Y20 – F, Test 3

Upon asking, athlete recieved reply from TO that only burpees counted as reps. Athlete claims she stopped to rest for the last round because of this. 

Rejected.

For Test 3, the special regulation clearly states:

”While there is no minimum work requirement in this workout, all repetitions completed will count toward the athletes’ score, including the buy-in each round of toes to bar, rope climbs, and pistols.”

Athlete is responsible for reading and understanding the rules and standards.

Nov 25 (Sat)

Sebastian Wiik, Norway
Y20 – M, Test 3

Athlete claims he did 5 pistols on right leg and switched to left. After three reps on left leg he was told by TO he had to do 8 on right first. Athlete calls on the attention of head TO and loses time. Athlete wants to be credited for one more rep. Video proof provided.

Approved.

For test 3, the special regulation clearly states the following:

”Athletes must do 8 pistols on one leg before switching to the other leg (5 each leg before switching for 19-20 age group)”.

Video confirms that athlete does 11 reps instead of 10. Score was adjusted to 209 reps.

Nov 25 (Sat)

Christian Karrestad, Norway
Y20 – M, Test 4

Athlete claims both his hands were clearly across the line for the third section of the handstand obstacle course. Video proof provided.

Approved.

Video clearly shows that the athlete’s hands cleared the white line. Score adjust with one added repetition.

Nov 25 (Sat)

Stine Moen Nilsen, Norway
Open Individual Female, Test 4

Athlete claims she was pushed by a judge in the neighboring lane on the last part of the handstand walk course, just as she was about to finish the last turn around the pylon. After that it took her anothet two attempts and more than a minute to finish. 

Approved.

Video shows that the athlete was accidentally knocked down by another judge at 2:42 according to the video feed. The athlete was clearly in control of her motion and would with high certainty have completed the test within another ten seconds of the incident. Score is adjusted to reflect this assessment so her final score will be 2:42 + 10 sec = 2:52.

Nov 25 (Sat)

Hajós Kornél, Hungary
Open Individual Male, Test 4

Athlete claims he cleared four sections on the handstand walk course and only had one section left to do (the polyn turn). Scorecard shows CAP+2 and he claims it should be CAP+1. Video proof provided.

Approved.

Video shows that the athlete was cleared on four sections within the timecap. Score adjusted to CAP+1.

Nov 26 (Sun)

Sebastian Wiik, Norway
Y20 Male, Test 5

On the round of 8 reps, athlete claims he did 8 ground to overhead and then 2 thrusters before taking a break. He then did another 2 thrusters and was then told by the TO to start over the round with 8 ground to overhead which resulted in him doing the round of 8 reps twice. Video proof provided.

Approved.

Video shows that the athlete’s claims are correct.

The reps that were counted for an incorrect movement are counted through the correct movement. Taking into account the time lost due to the discussion that occurred of about 10 seconds, 3 extra reps are granted. All other delays in the video are due to the rest taken by the athlete and cannot be used to obtain extra reps. 

Score is adjusted from 487 to 500 reps. 

Nov 26 (Sun)

Sabrina Raahauge, Denmark
Open Individual Female, Test 5

Athlete claims the judge miscounted repetitions on the double unders by 15-20 reps.

Rejected.

No video proof provided so athlete’s claims cannot be verified.
