I denne tråd kan der diskuteres følgende regelændringer som er op til afstemning i AIDA international.
Purpose: For Aida International to assume the ownership of the video rights to be able to promote AIDA and freediving.
Actual TecDoc rule 5.2.8 All official video images of the attempt become the property of the organizer. The organizer has exclusive rights to the official videos whilst AIDA International has limited rights. AIDA International may use the footage as support for judging and for education within the association."
Proposed new rule:
All official video images of the attempt become the property of Aida International. Aida International has exclusive rights to the official video .
Purpose: allow World Record validation in Aida Pool World Championships where the Managing judges may be on a different lane.
Actual rule 188.8.131.52 For any AIDA World Record in an AIDA Competition, at least two AIDA Judges (Level E or higher) must judge the performance, and at least one of those Judges must be a Managing Judge (Level B) or higher. At least one Managing Judge (Level B) or higher must be of another nationality than the athlete. For depth disciplines, in the case of an announced performance exceeding the current World Record, both such judges must be in the water.
184.108.40.206.1 Exception for AIDA Pool World Championships: any member of the elected jury may judge a world record performance. It is not necessary for a WR status judge to be judging that specific lane in which the record occurred .
Purpose: Clearly ban the use of a personal floatation device, or the safety kickboard in pool disciplines, to assist the athlete after surfacing.
Actual 3.1.16 The use of a personal float is allowed in all disciplines unless prohibited by the Jury; the Jury may prohibit a float if it may hinder judging, safety and/or video.
Proposed 3.1.16 The use of a personal flotation device( or the safety kickboard in pool) is allowed in all disciplines, but use of such devices to assist the athlete after surfacing ; will result in disqualification . The Jury, can however, prohibit a float if it could hinder judging, safety and/or video.
Purpose: To change and simplify the existing rule regarding ‘touch’ ; therefore an accidental , non-supporting ,or non-helpful touch by anyone will not result in a disqualification.
Actual rule: 3.1.15 The athlete cannot be helped or touched by anyone and cannot touch anyone during his/her performance unless he/she is in trouble. If this is the case, he/she will be disqualified; provided, however, that in competition a non-supportive touch by a staff member (e.g. a judge, photographer, or safety diver) shall not result in disqualification. The athlete can be touched by the coach/partner/safety diver for repositioning and safety checks during static (5.2.3 and 5.2.8). Prior to the athlete’s airway submerging for CWT, CNF and FIM performances, the athlete’s coach may touch/support him or her, with no penalty applied.
Proposed rule: 3.1.15 During the performance, the athlete cannot touch anyone or be helped or touched by anyone . The following exceptions apply:
- unintentional and non-supportive, non- helpful, touch
- touch by coach or safety freediver for repositioning and safety checks
during STA (5.2.3 and 5.2.8).
