IOMAA Island Games Entry Standards / Guidelines 2017
|Entry Standard||Development Guideline||Entry Standard||Development Guideline|
See IOMAA Conditions below for additional information
Please note that there are no specific trials for the Island Games. Performances must be achieved during competitions where the results are eligible to be entered on the Powerof10 database.
Where an athlete achieves multiple performances in the same individual event in a single day the following will apply:
- In track events only the fastest legal result of the day will be counted;
- In throwing and jumping events only the best legal result of the day will be counted.
For all relevant track and field events, wind assisted performances (>2.0 m/s) will not be accepted.
Hand timed performances in 100m, 200m, 400m, 110m/100m hurdles and 400m hurdles will be accepted but electronic timed performances will be given greater weight for consideration.
Indoor performances for all field events and for races of 200m or longer will be accepted.
The panel reserves the right to make value judgements on selections, on situations they consider to be exceptional circumstances within the spirit and aims of the general policy.
Athletes may only compete in events that they have been specifically selected for. Reserves may be selected as alternates to injured athletes who form part of a team (e.g. Half Marathon or Relay).
There is no right of appeal and the selection panel’s decision is final.
