2017-2020 AER WORLD CUP RULES 14 20160510_AER WCUP RULES 2017-20_V3.0_E.DOCX
Drawing of lots procedures The draw will decide the order in which the lot for each team, or gymnast, will be drawn and determine the order in which the team or gymnast will commence to compete in the Competition, both in qualifications and finals. For the health and safety of gymnasts, FIG has accepted that gymnasts competing in multiple finals require 10 minutes to recover before competing again. In AER Gymnastics the draw will be adjusted according to this principle. If a gymnast or group compete 7th in one rotation and are drawn in positions 1-3 in the next rotation the new starting position will become 4th. If a gymnast or group compete last in a rotation and are drawn in positions 1-4 in the next rotation the new starting position will be 5th (see FIG T.R 2016 Section 1 Art 4.4)
At the time of the nominative registrations, every Federation must nominate its gymnasts on the FIG online registration.

Every Federation is asked to nominate its gymnasts in the respective categories (IM, IW, MXP, TRIO and GROUP). Two weeks after the deadline of the nominative registration, the drawing of lots will be performed. This drawing of lots will be made by Federation (when 2 units are selected, a number one and a number two will appear in this drawing of lots).
After publication of the draw on the FIG website, the member Federation will be given an opportunity to modify the position of their gymnasts’ starting order within 3 days by using the official document to be found on FIG webpage of the event on the FIG Calendar. This document will allow every Federation to change its gymnasts’, pairs’, trios’ and groups’ position (i.e from position one to position two within the Federation). This document is to be sent back to the FIG office, attention M. Alexandre Cola (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 3 days after publication of the drawing of lots on the FIG website. Should no answer be received at the FIG office by the given deadline, the registration made by the respective Federation at the time of the nominative registration, will be considered as approved and final.
