  1. WHAT IS JWOC22 PART 2 - FOREST - VOTING CONTEST

It is a group of three voting polls for each of the three competitions of JWOC PART 2 - FOREST: Middle, Relay and Long. In this contest 9 entries for Portugal O' Meeting 2023 (www.pom.pt) will be offered.

 

  1. HOW TO VOTE?

 

  1. For each class (Men and Women) the voter chooses 3 favorite runners (1 for each medal), the finish time of the runner and 3 alternative runners.
  2. One athlete can only be voted once (i.e you cannot vote the runner A for Gold Medal and vote again for runner A for the Silver Medal).
  3. To choose alternative is optional and these runners are to be used in case one or more of the favorites runners do not start. Only if the runners do not start. If the runners are disqualified, another rule applies (see point D.5).
  4. Voting closes with the first start in each competition. Until then voters can change or re-submit new voting. Only the last voting counts.
  5. In the page below access the respective form and vote in your favorite individual runners (Middle and Long) or favorite teams (Relay) that you believe are most probable to win medals in these competitions.

 



  1. I DON'T KNOW THE RUNNERS VERY WELL - IN WHO SHOULD I VOTE?

What!? You don't know the runners? Shame on you! 😀

In fact it's no problem, we will help you, OK?

We compiled a list with all the runners and their last results in previous championships. 💡

You can download the list of previous results (updated on 4/11/2022).

You can download the estimated total time of relay teams (updated on 5/11/2022).



  1. HOW ARE THE VOTING RESULTS ORDERED?
  1. A system of points is used
  2. The voter with the least points wins the poll
  3. The voter gets the points corresponding to the favorite runner's place.
  4. If the voter gets the favorite and medal right then gets a bonus of minus 1 point.

Example:

 

Voting:

Gold medal: Runner A 

Silver Medal: Runner B

Bronze Medal: Runner C

 

Result:

Runner A: 10th

Runner B: 2nd

Runner C: 1st

 

Points:

Runner A: 10 points

Runner B: 2 - 1 = 1 point

Runner C: 1 point

 

Total points: 12

 

  1. If one of the voted runners is disqualified, the voter gets the maximum points scored by any voter for that medal position (i.e. you voted runner A for silver and he got disqualified. Someone voted on runner B for silver and he came 56th and this was the worst prediction among all voters for the silver medal. Then, you will get 56 points).
  2. The total points of the voter in each competition is the sum of points from Men class and Women class points
  3. Voters with the same number of points are tied by the total difference of time from what they predicted to the result time of the favorite runner.

 

 

E. WHAT CAN I WIN?

 

  1. LOTS OF FUN! - Support your Favorites! 👍

 

AND….

 

  1. In each of the voting polls will be offered 3 entries for Portugal O Meeting 2023 (www.pom.pt) - pack of 6 stages (4 forest, night sprint and Pre-O). Will be offered one entry for each of the top 3 voters.
  2. In total, 9 entries for POM 2023 will be offered.
  3. Offered entries can be transferable to others but only with 50% discount. If the same voter wins more than one entry, the second (and eventually third) entry can be transferred with 100% discount to another person.
  4. If a voter wins the 3 voting contests - all-in-all, the voter gets an additional 6 pack of beers. Grand Jury offering - but the voter needs to be in the arena of the Long Distance to collect it personally! 😀 🍺 🍺 🍺 🍺 🍺 🍺

 

F. UNPREDICTED CASES RESOLUTION

The Grand Jury of  JWOC 22 - PART 2 FOREST VOTING CONTEST - 3 members of the speakers team - will democratically, orderly and fairly sort out any unpredicted situation 😀
