7Sep18 Tournament Council modifies overall calculation for 35+ divisions in jumping

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.
