Winner of an event gets MAXIMUM points (10 If 10 athletes in class), second place 9 points etc. If an Athlete passes on a event or fails to get a measurable result in a event, they will receive zero (0) points (i.e. fails to get one repetition in a event for maximum repetitions, fails to lift the opening weight in a max lift, fails to participate in event etc.). The score for a placement shall remain the same through an entire competition (i.e. if the maximum points is 10 points in the first event (field of 10 athletes), it will remain 10 points in subsequent events even if the field of athletes has been reduced by attrition). The score in all 5 events counts in overall standing.
