4. System of Competition

 

The best competitive times of all entrants prior to the competition will be submitted on entry forms or on-line, as requested, and listed in order of time by the European Maccabi Management Committee. Swimmers who do not submit official recorded times shall be considered the slowest and will be placed at the end of the list with a no time. Placement of swimmers with identical times or of more than one swimmer without times shall be determined by draw.

 

Swimmers shall be placed in lanes according to the procedure of placing the fastest swimmer or team in the center lane in pool (lane 4). The swimmer having the next fastest time is to be placed on their left, then alternating the others to right and left in accordance with the submitted times.

 

If one heat, it shall be seeded as a final.

 

If two heats, the fastest swimmer shall be seeded in the second heat, next fastest in the first heat, next fastest in the second heat, next in the first heat, etc.

 

If three heats, the fastest swimmer shall be placed in the third heat, next fastest in the second, next fastest in the first. The fourth fastest swimmer shall be placed in the third heat, the fifth in the second heat, and the sixth fastest in the first heat, the seventh fastest in the third heat, etc

 

If four or more heats, the last three heats of the event shall be seeded as above. The heat preceding the last three heats shall consist of the next fastest swimmers; the heat preceding the last four heats shall consist of the next fastest swimmers, etc.

 

There will be no heats or finals for the 400m or 800m. These will be seeded with the top eight seeded times competing in the final heat.

 

Each country may enter one team of four swimmers for each relay event. If there are less than six teams in a race, then teams can be comprised of swimmers from countries who do not have a national team (composite relay). Composite relay teams will be treated as invitation teams, eligible to win medals should they finish first, second or third in a relay final. However, medals must be awarded to the first, second and third placed National teams as well.

 

For the Coaches race, each country must nominate one coach to compete. The race will be 50m freestyle.

 

Potential Skins competition rules:

A SKINS event is an exciting series of back-to-back races which operate on a knockout basis, with the three remaining swimmers racing each other in a head-to-head final race for medals.

The top eight girls and top eight boys will be invited to compete in the skins competition. One competitor from each country is allowed. Separate events are held for each age category (male U16/U18 and female U16/U18).

A stroke is drawn out of a hat and the eight swimmers race 50m of that stroke and the swimmer who finishes last is out. The seven remaining swimmers race again and the process repeats until the final race. The swimmer who is eliminated picks the next stroke randomly out of a hat.

Races are run consecutively so there is little time to rest. The event is unique as competitors will be required to race all four strokes, making the result unpredictable.

A prize is given to each winner of every race.

 

5. Medal Awards

 

Medals will be awarded to the first, second and third placed athletes.

Medal ceremonies for each day of competition will take place after the final swimming session of the day.
