IRONMAN铁人小教室】接受帮助也会违规? Get a penalty for accepting help from outside assistance?

铁人三项竞赛的精神在于靠自己力量完赛,不管是家人在旁边陪跑、或是途中给予大会提供之外的补给品等都算违规,因此在铁人比赛中要特别注意以下几点,以免不小心违反规定喔!

  1. 大会裁判、工作人员、以及赛会志工于会场内提供的饮料、营养品、技术及医疗上的协助皆合乎规范,其他支援则需由赛事总监或裁判长同意
  2. 比赛选手可在突发事件中互相帮助,例如在补给站之后提供饮品,或是自行车轮胎、内胎、打气筒等相关维修器材。
  3. 若提供装备协助之选手导致自身无法完赛,包含但不限于鞋子、自行车、车架、轮胎、和安全帽等,提供和接受装备的选手都会被判失去资格。
  4. 除了赛事总监或裁判长的同意下,选手不得特意帮助另一位选手在比赛中取得优势,违反将被判失去资格

互相帮助是种美德,但也要视情况和能力提供协助,否则帮了倒忙还让自己失去资格,可就得不偿失!

The valuable spirit of triathlon is that athletes try their best to complete the competition on their own and seek their own breakthroughs. Outside assistance including family support alongside and nutrition not associated with the event will be resulted in disqualification. Therefore, take note of the rules below so as to avoid receiving an unexpected penalty:

  • Assistance provided by Race Referees or Race Officials (including official Event volunteers) is allowed but such assistance is limited to: providing drinks, nutrition, mechanical and medical assistance, and other necessary assistance (as may be approved by the Event Director or Head Referee).
  • Athletes competing in the same Race may assist each other with incidental items such as, but not restricted to: nutrition and drinks after an aid station, pumps, tires, inner tubes, and puncture repair kits;
  • Athletes may not provide any item of equipment to an athlete competing in the same Race if it results in the donor athlete being unable to continue with his/her own Race. Such equipment includes but is not restricted to: shoes, complete bicycle, frame, wheels, and helmet. The penalty for this will be disqualification of both athletes; and
  • Unless otherwise pre-approved by the Event Director or Head Referee, no athlete shall intentionally cause the physical forward progress of another athlete on any part of the course during the Race. The penalty for this will be disqualification.

It is grateful to give a hand when your fellow competitor is in need but we should be careful that it may lead to disqualification for both of you. Instead of helping others unconditionally, we should evaluate our ability and the situation at that moment!
