The Second Version of the UAE Virtual Duathlon Starts Today
UAE Triathlon: New Mechanism for Calculating Points in the Race
In continuation of the series of virtual initiatives organized by the UAE Triathlon Association during the last period, in line with the precautionary and preventive measures of Corona virus, the second virtual race of the Triathlon will be launched today, and will last for three days, as the first day will be allocated to the young group under 18 years, and the second and third days for the age groups over 18 years. The third virtual race for people of determination will be held on May 12.
The Assembly announced the introduction of a new mechanism for calculating the results of virtual competitions, since the Triathlon player or the Duathlon player would normally have to end certain distances within the minimum possible time period, but with exceptional circumstances of stopping external activities, some race criteria had to be changed to accommodate these conditions, so that a virtual race could be organized. Calculate results as accurately as possible. The criteria changed to calculate the longest distance a player traveled in a given time period set by the organizers and set for the adult group (15 minutes running – 3 minutes for the first transition – 20 minutes of bicycling – 3 minutes for the second transition – 10 minutes running). The time period for the young group was set at (10 minutes, 3 minutes for the first transition, 10 minutes for the second transition, 3 minutes for the second transition, 5 minutes for the first phase), and all participants are required to use a walking device and home bikes, in compliance with the precautionary safety instructions of the new virus. The contestant is also required to be connected throughout the race to video communication programs and to send the mileage within 15 minutes of the end of the race time.
A different mechanism has been set to calculate the results of the race of the people of determination, to ensure that the most possible number of contestants from all over the world are given the opportunity to participate, taking into account the special circumstances of each contestant, as the winner will be announced from the category of people of determination that will achieve the best improvement in the three organized races. This was done in cooperation with the coach of Al Ain Club for People of Determination, Captain Reda AL Sudani.
The members of the association participated in daily remote group training through video communication programs following the board chairman Khaled Abdul Karim Al Fahim, Ahmad Jabr, the vice-president, Abd Al Malik Jani, Secretary-general of the association, members Asmaa Yousuf Al Janahi, Ahmad Al Shamsi, a large number of players, sports Council officials and clubs of the people of determination, to get up to the general levels and get the players ready to get the right part of the race.
