prescribed weight in kilograms (if necessary). If the athlete uses lbs-weights athlete has to convert in kilograms (1 lbs = 0,450 kg),
In order to validate your scores and qualify yourself to the Finals, you need to videotape every qualification workout.
To be valid, the video must include your name, the equipment and the loads used to train and to perform the score (time/reps).
It is your responsibility to place the camera well enough for us to validate the movement standards.
Your video will be judged according to the movement standards as following:
Good (no “bad repetition” or “bad repetitions” that are not recorded in the athletes score).
Valid-Minor Penalty (1 to 4 bad repetitions) results in subtracting 1 to 4 reps from score.
Valid-Major Penalty (more than 5 bad repetitions) results in subtracting 15 percent of total reps.
Invalid (you are not following the movement standards, the camera is misplaced, violation of the workout format, miscounting of the repetitions): your score will not be valid in this case.
The athlete will be informed ASAP to have the chance to repeat the workout (if there is still time before the deadline).
It is the sole responsibility of the athlete to ensure the submission of the video as early as possible in order to make a new attempt if the score isn’t valid the first time.
Organizer has the right to demand a video for any reason, without needing to specify it.
The athlete has 48 hours to submit the video to the organizer after having being asked (countdown starts when the organizer has sent out the email).
If the video is not submitted in time, the score will be deleted without any possible recourse.
Scoring of each workout of Legionar Battle is based on fastest time, most repetitions or highest weight and will be shown on the website.
Every incorrect or invalid repetition according to standards will be judged as a no-rep.
If the workout is based on fastest time, the ranking will go from fastest to slowest time in which the entire workout is finished.
If the workout is based on highest number of repetitions, the ranking goes from highest to lowest number of repetitions. If the workout is based on highest weight, the ranking goes from highest to lowest weight.
Ranking follows the following system: athlete who is placed first gets zero point, second gets four, third gets eight, fourth will get 10 points, fifth will get 12 points, etc..
The athlete who has the lowest sum of points after qualification workouts is first, the one with the second lowest sum of points is second etc.
Every athlete is responsible for upholding the standards.
At the finals, judges nominated by the organizer will approve the athletes performance. Submission of scores in the online competition is based on honor and honesty.
On top of that, the organizer has the right to demand video for any reason, without needing to specify it.
Final result of the online qualification will be determined by the organizer following the rules of ranking mentioned previously.
The finals will take place in Študentski Kampus Ljubljana, Slovenia on the 28th of September 2019.
Athletes who will get an invitation to the finals will have 5 days time to accept the invitation by logging on to their athlete profile on www.legionar.si and paying the registration fee of 35€ for all categories.
If the athlete does not respond within the deadline, his spot will no longer be valid.
In this case – and if the athlete does not want or is not able to take part – the organizer has the right to nominate the next athlete of the same gender and age class in line in the ranking.
On finals’ days, athletes have to complete several workouts.
Location, time and information about the workouts will be communicated latest with the invitation to the finals.
Scoring of the finals
Winners will be determined by a process of elimination which is based on the workouts at finals.
There will be two qualification rounds, a semi-final and a final round.
Details will be published latest after the invitation of final participants.
Each workout will be judged by an official judge who will check all criteria regarding workout and ranking.
Each athlete and/or his/her coach has to sign the scoring card. A signed scoring card is valid and cannot be contested. Decisions of judges are final and binding.
Points will be assigned following the same procedure as in the qualification.
The athlete with the best performance will get 0 point, second best will get 4 points, third get 8 points, fourth will get 10 points, fifth will get 12 points, etc.. Ranking will consider the sum of points – the athlete with the lowest sum is first, second lowest is second etc..
There will be 1 cut during the finals in Scaled and Master competition after 3 workouts.
In Elite there will be two cuts, first after workout no.2 on Saturday ( best 8M/F advance to Semi Final) and second after Semi Final workout ( best 4 M/F advance to Final).
In case of a tie between 2 athletes the following procedure will be used:
organizer will consider points from qualification – better placed athlete moves on if the scores are still equal, the older athlete will move on if there is still a tie, athletes have to complete another workout to be defined by the organizer, better athlete moves on.
In case of a tie in the final round among the first three places, the organizer will consider the scores of the finals’ days. The athlete who won more workouts will be placed better than the other athlete(s).
If there are still equal scores, prizes will be divided amongst the athletes with the same score. If this is not possible, the winner will be chosen by lottery.
