Q:我的成绩显示DNS/DNF/DQ是什么意思?

A:在三铁比赛中除了正常的显示成绩外,你的成绩可能会出现另外三个结果,DNS、DNF、DQ。

第一,DNS (Did Not Start)报名但未出赛。

你有报名比赛但比赛当天却没参赛时,成绩最后会显示DNS。

第二,比较常见,DNF (Did Not Finish):出赛但未完赛。

成绩出现DNF的可能很多,一是在比赛途中弃赛;二是成绩超过各项限时,不仅仅是总关门时间,单项超出规定时间也是会被判DNF的。

举例来说,IRONMAN 70.3 Taiwan 的各项限时为游泳: 开赛后1时10分钟;自行车:开赛后5时 30 分钟;路跑: 开赛后8时 30 分钟。

你自行车完成时间为开赛后6时,但之后跑步奋起直追,最后进终点为开赛后8时。尽管是在总关门时间内完赛,但单项超出规定时间,最后还是会被判DNF。

最后一种,DQ (Disqualified)被取消资格。
因犯规而被裁判或大会工作人员判定取消资格,最常见的情况通常是选手在自行车赛段时乱丢垃圾或是被判跟车,裁判拦下选手并告知需在进入转换区时进罚时帐进行罚时。

选手在收到裁判的罚时判决后必须主动进入转换区罚时帐进行罚时,转换区及罚时帐的工作人员不会主动提醒选手须进行罚时,如果选手没有在出转换区前完成罚时,会因违反规则最后成绩被判DQ。

下次看到成绩时,如果看到是DNF/DQ,不妨可以先想想是不是单项超时或是被判跟车却未罚时,如果成绩还是有问题,欢迎到大会服务处反应,工作人员都会热情帮你解答!

【IRONMAN Fact】

Q: What is DNS/DNF/DQ?

A:Aside from finish time, you may receive a DNS, DNF, or DQ for your race results. What do the abbreviations actually stand for?

1. DNS (Did not start)

When you have signed up for the race but are absent on race day, you will receive a DNS.

2. DNF (Did not finish)

You will receive a DNF for several reasons. Let’s talk about the two most common reasons. First, dropping out amid the race. Second, failure to finish within the cut-off time, – not only the race cut-off time but also the cut-off time for each discipline.

For instance, the cut-off times for the three disciplines of IRONMAN 70.3 Taiwan are:

Swim: 1 hour 10 minutes

Bike: 5 hours and 30 minutes of accumulated race time

Run: 8 hours and 30 minutes of accumulated race time

Therefore, if you fail to finish the bike leg within 5 hours and 30 minutes but still make it to the finish line with sensational 8-hour finish time, sadly, you will still receive a DNF.

3. DQ (Disqualified)

If you violate the race rules, the race referee or race officials can disqualify you from the race. The most common unintentional rule violation is forgetting to stop in the penalty tent in the transition area after receiving a time penalty. The race officials in the penalty tent or transition area will not provide any reminder about the time penalty and therefore it is the participants’ obligation to complete the time penalty in the transition area. Failure to do so can lead to race rules violation and receiving a DQ.

All in all, if you see any of the above abbreviations on your race results, try to think about the causes. Did you forget to complete your time penalty? Or did you exceed the cut-off times in any discipline?
