FIG CODE OF POINTS
2001-2004

The new Code of Points comes into effect on the 1st January 2001 and members should be aware of a number of changes that will effect all three disciplines of our sport during the next Olympic Cycle.

To assist, I have endeavoured to summarise the main changes below. Hopefully, you will find this information helpful and not too onerous!
