Left to Discretion 24/06/2014

The World Games 2005 Duisburg An article on amendments to the Competition Rules published here last week failed to make reference to the fact that enforcement of the Rule B.2.3 is left to the discretion of each WDSF National Member Body.

The rule refers to the eligibility of athletes to compete in major WDSF Competitions. To be eligible to compete in World Championships, GrandSlams and in games (such as The World Games, Asian Games, World DanceSport Games, etc.), an athlete may - at the discretion of his or her WDSF National Member Body - be required to have competed exclusively in the WDSF Competition System in the 12 months leading up to the respective event.

WDSF Communications apologises for this mistake.
