1.8 STARTING ORDER


A. PROCEDURE FOR DRAWING LOTS

(T.R., 2017, Sect. 1, Reg.4.4 / Sect 6, Reg 3.4)
 
A draw will decide the starting order of the qualification rounds and the finals. Lots will be drawn in the presence of the President of the Aerobic Gymnastics TC or a nominated Aerobic Gymnastics TC member.
  1. The drawing of lots will take place within two weeks after the deadline of the definitive entry
 
  1. The federations will be informed by the Secretary General at least one month beforehand of the time and place of the drawing of lots and they will be entitled to be present at the draw.
 
  1. The media will be informed and allowed to send representatives and the local authority, in whose area the draw will be held, will be invited to send representatives.
 
  1. The lots shall be drawn by a “neutral” person or by computer.
 
  1. The draw will decide the order in which the lot for each team or gymnast will be drawn and determine the order in which the team or gymnast will start to compete in the competition
 
  1. “10 minutes rules”
For the health and safety of gymnasts, FIG has accepted that gymnasts competing in multiple finals require 10 minutes to recover before competing again. This recovery period has been translated to equal to 4 competition performances. (see T.R. 2017, section 1, reg 4.4)
The draw will be adjusted according to this principle. If a gymnast or group competes 7th in one rotation andare drawn in positions 1-3 in the next rotation the new starting position will become 4th. If a gymnast or group competes last in a rotation and are drawn in positions 1-4 in the next rotation the new starting position will be 5th.
This adjustment, if necessary, will be made by the Superior Jury President and once the qualifying gymnasts are determined an adjusted draw and start list will be produced by Longines.This principle applies for all following rotations and also during other final competitions as well as for World Games (qualifications).

B. WALK OVER

Should a competitor fail to appear on stage within 20 seconds after being called, a deduction of 0.5 point will be made by the Chair of the Judges Panel.
Should a competitor fail to appear on stage within 60 seconds after being called, the start will be deemed as a Walk Over. Upon announcement of such a Walk Over the competitor loses his right to participate in the category in question.
 
In case of EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES, refer to chapter 8.
