No multiplier for CDT events during Olympic selection period


Consistent with previous qualification years, the AFF has confirmed that the High Performance Commission will not approve any Designated Tours for Open fencers during the Olympic selection period from 3 April 2019 to 4 April 2020. Under the AFF Selection Policy, a multiple of 1.5 applies to determine the points awarded for events which form part of a “Designated Tour”. Accordingly, the decision not to approve any Designated Tours for Open fencers provides increased certainty for athletes endeavouring to qualify for the Olympics. The National Weapons Coaches may still organise tours during the Olympic qualifying period – however, the 1.5 multiple provided for in clause 3.14 of the Selection Policy will not apply to any of these events, as they will not be Designated.
