Special regulations

The participants of a competition are not allowed to finish their run before the time is up. If a contestant cannot continue (e.g. in case of injury) he gets disqualified and his opponent goes on to the next round.

Each competitor has the right of one injury lay-off at each tournament. This break can be 2 minutes maximum and should be used for medical treatment or like that. The break needs to be announced to the head of the jurors.

The head of the jurors is authorized to disqualify a competitor in case of health threat, even against his will.

Behavior in case of absence of a contest participant:
In case of absence after the registration (before the contest) and before the sign in:
The participant will not receive world ranking list points; his competitor receives a bye for the next round. If the reason of the absence is indefensible, the athlete will get a suspension for WSFed competitions (6 – 12 month). During this suspension the athlete can take part in competitions, but neither will get the points, nor is listed in the world ranking list.

In case of absence after the sign in (on site):
