Strongman Scoring System
Scoring will be the standard method for each group of athletes in the field. The score for winning a single event is equal to the total number of athletes in that field and counted down by place of finish.
For example, in a field of 20 athletes the scoring would be:
1st place = 20 points 2nd place = 19 points 3rd place = 18 points 4th place = 17 points 5th place = 16 points . . . and so on.
If an athlete cannot achieve enough progress to score on a given event, the athlete will receive zero points for said event. Scoring Ties: When scoring a tie on any single event, the sum of points for all shared places are to be averaged and awarded to the athletes included in the tie.
For example, in the case of a tie for 1st place in a field of 20 athletes the scoring would be (20+19)/2 resulting in:
1st place = 19.5points 1st place = 19.5 points 3rd place = 18 points 4th place = 17 points . . . and so on. Or, a 3-way tie for 3rd place among 20 athletes would be (18+17+16)/3 resulting in: 1st place = 20 points 2nd place = 19 points 3rd place = 17 points 3rd place = 17 points 3rd place = 17 points 6th place = 15 points 7th place = 14 points . . . and so on.
Determining Final Placing:
The final placing will be determined by the athlete’s total sum of points from all contested events. The athlete with the highest point total is the winner. In the case of a tie, on final scores, the athlete with the most 1st place finishes on the contested events is the winner. If the athletes have the same number of 1st place finishes, the count will go to 2nd place finishes and continue down the single event performances until a winner can be determined.
For racing (fastest time) events, the athletes are placed from fastest to slowest. Those who do not complete the course will receive a mark for distance and be placed behind the slowest athlete to finish the course in order of distance completed.
Split Times “Split timing” will be used when an athlete reaches a predetermined stage of the loading event. This method prevents multiple ties if a large number of athletes are unable to complete the event. For all athletes who do not complete the loading event, the placing will proceed from the athlete who came closest to completion in the least amount of time. Athletes reaching the same stage of the event are scored by their respective times on the previous successful load.
