Outline of selection competitions
Results, Performance and development profiles, from the following list of competitions will be considered towards selecting the Senior Norwegian National team for major competitions in 2017.
2017 Senior World Taekwondo Championships
2017 World university Games
Prospective athletes are required to compete in ≥ 3 secondary / primary competitions in 2017 (prior to the respective championships). Tertiary competitions will only be taken in to consideration when there is no obvious selection from Primary and Secondary profiles.
Results will be converted in to points for respective athletes specific to the competitions listed above. Final points are calculated by means of a collection of “HVIS” (IF) statements (see Appendix 1).
The final selection decision will be made at the sole discretion of the Senior National Team head Coach.
An athlete who does not meet the selection process set out above may be considered for selection if he or she meets the defined situations outlined below.
Mitigating circumstances are situations which arise through no fault or action of the athlete, and which act to limit the athlete’s ability to participate in a selection competition(s), but do not compromise the athlete’s potential to perform at the highest level at the 2017 Senior World Taekwondo Championships and World University Games.
Examples of mitigating circumstances include, but are not limited to:
a. Unforeseen injury
b. Legal commitments that cannot be rescheduled
Consideration of mitigating circumstances will be reviewed by a panel comprising the Senior National team coach, a senior Olympic Medical representative and the Chief of Sport. The respective athlete must, where possible, provide evidence.
The panel will take in to consideration:
a. The athletes accumulated results and performances to date,
b. The likely potential of the athlete at the time of the respective Championships
c. The written explanation of the athlete’s circumstances.
Primary competitions carry full points*, secondary competitions 75% points and tertiary competitions 50% points.
G1 wins equate to 2 points, G2 wins equate to 3 points and G4+ wins equate to 4 points. European U21 is classed as a transition major, therefore only 2 points are awarded for a win.
Final points are calculated by means of a collection of “HVIS” (IF) statements that adhere to the following rules,
IF ranking points of Norwegian athlete are less than the opposition, points are calculated as the sum of 10% of the ranking difference plus the associated 2, 3 or 4 points. In all other conditions the points stand as 2, 3 or 4 respectively.
Overall competition points are calculated as the sum of the above plus any associated G-status points for placing (e.g. G1, 3rd place = 3,6 points).
Example of “HVIS” (IF) application:
a. Norwegian athlete with 16 ranking points defeats athlete who has 35 points, points awarded = ((35-16) x 0,10) + 2 \ 3,9 points (Tertiary = 1,95 points, Secondary = 2,93 points, Primary = 3,9 points).
*In line with the WTF/Olympic ranking system there is a 25% reduction in points each year associated to Major Championships.
