NEW e-Learning Fact Sheet - 2015 (3)
New IBU points system
The IBU is bringing a new qualifying points system for 2015/16.
IBU QUALIFICATION POINTS - MEN After Period 2 2014/2015
Here are some Qualifying Points FAQ:
1. How was this list made?
This list was created by scoring the competitions during the 2013-2014 season and the first trimester of the 2014-2015 season. The best three point scores were averaged from trimesters 2 and 3 from the 2013-14 season and trimester 1 from the 2014-2015 season. This is how the point list will be produced after each trimester.
2. What if an athlete has less than three point scoring races in the three trimester period?
If an athlete has only two point scores then a 10% penalty is given for their ranking list points. If an athlete has only one point score then a 20% penalty is given for the ranking list points.
3. Why do some athletes have 0.00 points?
Athletes who win a WC, WCH or OWG competition earn 0.00 points for that race. Athletes who have three wins over the three trimester scoring period will therefore have zero points.
4. When will the IBU Qualifying Points List be updated next?
The qualifying points list will be updated at the end of each trimester and posted to the IBU Members Center. 5. When will the new qualification system enter into force? The new qualification, quota and wild card system will be in force for the 2015-2016 season. The qualifying points list will be based on the results of all three trimeters from the 2014-2015 season.
