Selection D18E, H18E, D20E and H20E

Entries to the junior elite classes at O-Ringen Värmland 2017 will be open until Friday the 21st of July at 12.00. Each of these classes is expected to have 120 competitors.

  • A ranking list containing 140 runners, based on entries and federations' ranking lists as of July 1st, will be published on July 7th. Please note that the ranking list is a preliminary list, only aiming to present the current status.
  • A final selection list containing 120 runners, based on entries made through July 21st at 12.00 and the national federations' ranking lists as of July 1st will be published on July 22nd.

Preliminary ranking list

The preliminary ranking list will be published July 7th and will be based on entries made through July 1st. The list includes 140 runners and is organized as follows:

  • Runners selected for EYOC 2017 or JWOC 2017 are automatically granted a place
  • Runners are then ranked according to the national federations' ranking lists, where every nation will receive a defined number of nation places as follows:
    • Proportion of a nation's places = (Proportion of top 50 places at O-Ringen 2016 for the nation + Proportion of entries in the class for the nation as of 1st of June 2017) / 2
    • Number of national places = Proportion of nation places * (115 – Number of JWOC/EYOC runners)
  • If a nation does not have enough runners signed up to meet the number of national places calculated above, these national places will be distributed among the other nations through a drawing, weighted by the calculated proportion of national places.

Example: 31 runners registered for the D18E class participated at JWOC or EYOC 2017. These are automatically granted places in the class. This means 115 – 31 = 84 places remain to be distributed. Sweden had 48% among top 50 in D18E at O-Ringen 2016, and as of July 1st 72% of the signed up runners were Swedish. This means the number of national places for Sweden is 60% * 84 runners = 50 runners. These runners are selected according to the Swedish ranking list as of 1st of July. JWOC/EYOC runners are excluded from the list.

The proportion of nation places will be published at www.oringen.seexternal link no later than June 7th.

Final selection list

The selection list will be published no later than July 22nd and will include 120 runners. It will be based on the same rules as the ranking list, but will also include runners who signed up by the final entry deadline (21st of July at 12.00). The selection list will be organized in the same way as the ranking list:

  • Runners selected for EYOC 2017 or JWOC 2017 are automatically granted a place
  • Runners are then ranked according to the national federations' ranking lists, where every nation will receive a defined number of nation places as follows:
    • Proportion of a nation's places = (Proportion of top 50 places at O-Ringen 2016 for the nation + Proportion of entries in the class for the nation as of 1st of June 2017) / 2
    • Number of national places = Proportion of nation places * (115 – Number of JWOC/EYOC runners)
  • If a nation does not have enough runners signed up to meet the number of national places calculated above, these national places will be distributed among the other nations through a drawing, weighted by the calculated proportion of national places.
  • The last 5 places will be distributed by the O-Ringen Competition management, either as “wild cards” or according to the rules described above

A reserve list including 20 runners, based on the same rules as for the selection list, will be published at the same time as the selection list. In case of cancellations from runners on the selection list, runners from the reserve list will be added according to the reserve list order. Cancellations shall be submitted to elit@oringen.se no later than 15.00 Saturday 22nd of July.
