Ski-O World Cup 2006 Scoring System – Rule Change approved

Posted on | October 20, 2005 | Category: News

The IOF has approved a rule change regarding the scoring system for the Ski-O World Cup 2006. In the Individual World Cup, each competitor?s total score is the sum of his/her 7 (instead of 6) best points scores out of the 9 World Cup events. In the Relay World Cup there are no changes.

The World Cup 2006 in Ski-Orienteering starts in Vuokatti and Kiururvesi, Finland, in mid-January. The second World Cup round will be organised in Madona, Latvia in the beginning of February and the final round is scheduled 20-27 February in Ivanovo, Russia.

Special Rules for Red Group Allocation Method for World Ski Orienteering Championships 2007 will be published by the end of the year.

World Cup 2006 Scoring System

In the Individual World Cup, each competitor?s total score is the sum of his/her 7 best points scores out of 9 World Cup events. If, for some reason, the result of a competition does not count for the overall ranking, the number of results to count for the total score shall be decreased by one.

  1. The 35 best competitors in each class shall obtain points as follows: 60, 50, 45, 40, 36, 33, 30, 28, 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
  2. If two or more competitors share a place in a competition, they all receive the higher point score.
  3. In the case of an equal total score for two or more competitors, the best single score decides, then the second best, the third best, the fourth best, the fifth best, the sixth best (and then the seventh best if 7 scores count). If they are still equal, the placing in the last competition of the World Cup season is decisive, even if it is not among the 6 (or 7) best results.
  4. In the Relay World Cup each Federation?s total score in each class is the sum of its points scores in all relay competitions.
  5. The 15 best teams in each class shall obtain points as follows: 20, 17, 15, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. For the allocation of points, only the better-placed team from each Federation shall be considered.
  6. If two or more teams have the same placing, they shall all receive the higher point score.
  7. In the Relay World Cup, in the case of an equal total score for two or more Federations, the best single score decides. If they are still equal, the placing in the last event is decisive.
  8. A Federation?s total score is independent of which competitors make up its better placed (counting) team for each competition. In the prize-giving ceremony for the over-all Relay World Cup, a Federation may be represented by all competitors having skied in at least one of its counting
