Athletics Rules

Date/Site Changes

All events must take place on the scheduled calendar day (local time) otherwise all bets on the game will be cancelled. However, if a match in the Olympics or World Championships is postponed bets will stand providing the match is rescheduled to take place before the closing ceremony. Event(s) must take place in the same city, but not restricted to a specific venue or arena.

Minimum Length of Play

All bets on athletics' events assume that everyone listed is a runner and that all bets are all in, compete or not, unless otherwise stated. If an event does not conclude after the first heat begins, all bets will be cancelled. Any heats where winners/qualifiers had been determined will be settled as normal.

Athletics Wagers

Bets will be settled on the podium position result, regardless of any subsequent disqualifications. If there is no podium ceremony, bets will be settled on the result immediately declared by the official governing body, irrespective of any subsequent inquiry.

If a competitor or team does not start a race or tournament then bets placed on that selection will stand.

The final medal table declared by the governing body at the end of the event will be used to settle bets on how many medals a competitor or country may win. Any subsequent changes to the medal table will not be taken into consideration.

Head-to-Head / Match/Group Betting

Both/all listed competitors must start for bets to stand; if either competitor does not start all bets are cancelled.  Should one competitor withdraw or be disqualified after the event begins then the other will be deemed the winner.

To Win a Medal

Bets settled on the original medal ceremony. Should two or more competitors or teams finished tied for bronze, and both receive medals, then both will be winning selections.

Heat Winner

Betting on individual heats. Should the overall event not be completed for whatever reason, bets on heats will stand.
