Each finisher of a race gains points according to the following format:
OWWT (event) race winner time / racer time *1000
In case of equal points, goes up the swimmers that finished more events, if they finished same number of events last result on ranking decide who is on top.
RACE POINTS TO FINAL RANKING
Final Ranking Points = Σ <t event A winner / t event A> x 1000
+ <t event B winner / t event B> x 1000
+ <t event C winner / t event C> x 1000 = Final Ranking Points
t = time in hours and decimals (hh,mmm)
A,B,C : 3 best results (in points not by event ranking)
In case that only have 2 results there is no C results only A and B
OPEN WATER WORLD TOUR REGULATION
- All swimmers who take part at least in one event of the OWWT will be ranked.
- At least two events finished must be done to be considerate as a Final Ranked Swimmer and to have access to final Awards.
