2020 ICF Masters Canoe Sprint world Championships
14 - 16 Aug 2020
The percentages listed correspond to a top 20 World Cup, World Championship or European Championship placing in each event with the exception of C2 which is defined from Top 15 standard and C1W which is defined from Top 10 standard. These performance criteria have been adjusted based upon data from 2009- 2018 and will be re-assessed for 2020.
Paddlers who enter more than one event will need to demonstrate a full commitment to the competition programme of both events in the case of being selected into any team. Any decision would be determined by reference to coaching staff to determine if appropriate training is being undertaken. If this is not the case, then the place will be awarded to the next boat in line (pending fulfilment of selection criteria). Athletes who enter more than one event and relinquish places in a single event will be able to take these places up at a later date (up to three weeks prior to the race date) in the case where the partner (crew boat) becomes injured after the selection series.
The International Panel retains the right to adapt racing to ensure a fair process in line with the following principles and processes: The chief judge will have the responsibility to assess weather conditions and make necessary decisions relating to the timetabling of the event. The chief judge and International Panel will also have the responsibility to make any adjustments to the timetable following any delays. Should local conditions threaten the planned racing then the chief judge reserves the right to amend the race format/schedule/start or finish lines in any way necessary to complete fair racing. Examples of such amendments could include: Early morning/ evening racing under floodlights Taking results from first runs Counting results from runs where a whole event /phase has been completed fairly Reducing start intervals Not changing the course between races Changing order of events Single run races/multiple races in 1 day This is not an exhaustive list and all other options are also able to be considered to complete a fair selection series in accordance with the specific challenge(s) identified. The minimum number of races that all 2019 GBR Team Selection series will include is 2.
