Scoring

Timed Disciplines shall be hand timed, and distances shall be measured by standard measuring device. The score in a Discipline shall be determined by placement and based on the number of Athletes starting in the first Discipline of the contest. Winner of an event gets 1 point, second place 2 points etc. If an Athlete pass on a Discipline or fail to get a measurable result in a Discipline, he will receive maximum points (i.e. fails to get one repetition in a Discipline for maximum repetitions, fails to lift the opening weight in a max lift, etc.). The score for a placement shall remain the same through an entire competition (i.e. if the maximum points is 16 points in the first Discipline, it will remain 16 points in subsequent Disciplines even if the field of athletes has been reduced by attrition).
