8.16.2. The Participant can only obtain the maximum mark of “4” points from each of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd judge(s), if during his performance in a particular round he has repeated an element(s) for two (2) or more times.
Points for elements will not be reduced, if the elements are done in combination and they are combined in a completely different routine as only 1 element out of minimum of 3 elements.
8.17. If a Participant does not follow the requirements in Clause 7. of these Regulations, the Participant will get the mark of “0” points from all judges in that round.
8.18. The judges cannot give final marks for the first round before the last Participant has finished his performance (that is before the judges have seen the performances of all Participants in the first round). The judges must write notes during the first round, but can give the final marks only after the first round is completed. This way the evaluation and marks will be more accurate and objective. It is not the same with the second round.
8.19. Each judge will give marks to Participants in the first round and then the marks will be summed up. At the end of the first round, ten (10) athletes with the highest sums of points will qualify for the second round (battle round).

8.21. Points that were received in the first and second round do not mean anything in the final round. The first and the second round are just qualification rounds for the final round and do not mean anything in the final round. The winners of a final round are the ones with the highest score of the best five (5) athletes; other Participants’ results are: “Did not qualify for the final”.
8.22. Before a competition, each judge will be given judging sheets which will have everything that is needed to help in the judges’ work. The necessary amount of the judging sheets will be prepared by the Federation and given to the Organizers, while preparing for a Stage.
8.23. Before a competition, all the judges must get read the regulations of the competition and must confirm their agreement to the regulations with their signature.
8.24. In case of identical scores (equal sum of points received by two or more Participants) the judges will together democratically decide the winner by giving constructive arguments.
8.25. All the marks given by the judges have to be published immediately after the results are ready.
9. COMPLAINTS ABOUT JUDGING
9.1. Complaints will be accepted only if there is suspicion of dishonest (too high) evaluation, by the 1st, 2nd or 3rd judge giving advantage to the Participants who did not show their best performance. Complaints about too low evaluations will not be accepted because a judge has the right to give low marks for, in his opinion, a performance which is not good enough.
9.2. The complaints must be sent in a written format to the special representative of the Federation no later than one (1) hour after the competition results are revealed.
9.3. The complaints will be reviewed, if there will be three (3) or more complaints given by three (3) or more different Participants about the same judge. By looking through the videos of the performances of the Participants, it will be determined if the complaints are valid.
9.4. If evidence is found for the complaint that a judge has subjectively given a higher mark to a Participant but not to others, the judge will be forbidden to judge in official street workout competitions organized by the Federation for two (2) years.
9.5. If the complaint about the 1st, 2nd or 3rd judge(s) reveals a violation of these Regulations, the results of the competition will not be changed, only the judge will be forbidden from judging in competitions. This will protect the judges and Organizers from false accusations.
9.6. If the complaint about the 4th judge reveals a violation of these Regulations, the points given to the Participant by the judge will be erased.
