The tournament council modified the current jump formulas.

The formula used a 10m offset for all men’s divisions and a 7m offset for all women’s divisions. Since the distances get less in the older divisions, this gave a disproportionate number of points per meter to the older divisions.

Now each division will have its own offsets as follows:

Division | Offset |
---|---|

Men 35+ | subtract 20 |

Men 45+ | subtract 15 |

Men 55+ | subtract 10 |

Men 65+ | subtract 0 |

Women 35+ | subtract 7 |

Women 45+ | subtract 0 |

Women 55+ | add 5 |

Women 65+ | add 10 |

These formulas will be in effect for the World 35+ Championships in November.
