Individual events must take place on scheduled day, or bets will be cancelled. However, if an event in the Olympics or World Championships is postponed, then bets will stand so long as the event is rescheduled to take place before the closing ceremony. Event(s) must take place in the same city, but not restricted to a specific venue or arena.
Minimum Length of Play
All bets on athletics' events assume that everyone listed is a runner and that all bets are all in, compete or not, unless otherwise stated. If an event does not conclude after the first heat begins, all bets will be cancelled. Any heats where winners/qualifiers had been determined will be settled as normal.
Bets will be settled on the podium position result, regardless of any subsequent disqualifications. If there is no podium ceremony, bets will be settled on the result immediately declared by the official governing body, irrespective of any subsequent inquiry.
If a competitor or team does not start a race or tournament then bets placed on that selection will stand.
The final medal table declared by the governing body at the end of the event will be used to settle bets on how many medals a competitor or country may win. Any subsequent changes to the medal table will not be taken into consideration.
Head-to-Head / Match/Group Betting.
Both/all listed competitors must start for bets to stand; if either competitor does not start all bets are cancelled. Should one competitor withdraw or be disqualified after the event begins then the other will be deemed the winner.
To Win a Medal
Bets settled on the original medal ceremony. Should two or more competitors or teams finished tied for bronze, and both receive medals, then both will be winning selections.
Betting on individual heats. Should the overall event not be completed for whatever reason, bets on heats will stand.
