Once an athlete has qualified for a subsequent round of a particular event they are not permitted to opt out of that event and continue to compete in the Championships.

Athletes will wear the same competition number in every event they compete in. Each athlete will only be given one pair of numbers so they must keep them for all events and finals.

In the event of a substitution the athlete being substituted in must wear their OWN number and not change to the original entrants’ number.
