Race interruptions swissultra 2017: IUTA decision
We would like to inform you about the racing interruptions and their influence on the overall time of the swissultra competitions 2017. This information concerns the two DECA competitions (DECA Continuous and DECA one per day).
On 18 and 24 August, the race directors decided to interrupt the competitions for safety reasons. The interruption was due to heavy thunderstorms with lightning strikes and heavy rainfall. Unfortunately, race interruptions are not a part of the IUTA regulations. So the swissultra race directors have decided to stop the clock, and recommended the IUTA to consider the interruptions as a neutral time. Safety is our top priority and we want to take on our responsibility towards the athletes without any disadvantages. In 2016, we also decided to interrupt the swissultra races because of thunderstorms during the swimming, and the IUTA has accepted our times. For 2017, the race interruptions are now considered as part of the competition, and the duration of the interruptions is part of the competition time.
IUTA officially notified us of its decision on 15 September 2017. The swissultra organizing committee accepts the IUTA decision. We would like to apologize to the athletes for their confusion and any inconvenience.
