TT:R YOG Format - Equipment

Equipment for the Youth Olympic Games

In the Youth Olympic Games and the Qualification Events, only registered series production hulls (boards) and registered series production "Leading Edge Inflatable" kites are allowed to be used.

The list of registered series production equipment which is eligible to compete can be found here:

Please note that despite the registration and listing in above lists, competitors are responsible that the equipment is compliant (i.e. has an "IKA Registered Series Production Equipment" label attached)

For each of the above events (YOG and qualifier events), only one hull (board) and a maximum of four kites may be registered to be used during that event. The kites must be chosen in 4 size categories to cover the whole wind range from light to strong winds.

Please refer to the TT:R class rules for further information.

TT:R YOG Format - Qualification System

How to qualify for the Youth Olympic Games

The 2018 Youth Olympic Games will be held in Buenos Aires between October 6 and October 18, 2018.

The Youth Olympic Games are open to riders born between 2000 and 2003.

There are 12 entries for boys, and 12 entries for girls.

Qualification System

Every rider has two opportunities to qualify his country to the Youth Olympic Games: the Continental Championships beginnng of 2018 and the World Championships in early summer 2018.

All riders must comply with the provisions of the Olympic Charter currently in force, including but not limited to, Rule 41 (Nationality of Competitors). Only those riders who have complied with the Olympic Charter may participate in the Youth Olympic Games.

From the 12 places for each gender, riders can qualify as follows:

  Boys Girls
Africa 1 1
Asia 1 1
Central & South America 1 1
Europe 1 1
North America & Caribbean 1 1
Oceania 1 1
Host Country (Argentina) 1 1
Tri-partite place awarded by the IOC 1 1
World Championships 4 4

Should a Continental Qualification Event be held prior to the World Championship and should an NOC (National Olympic Committee) obtain a quota place in both, the allocation of the World Championships will take precedent and the quota place from the Continental Qualification Event will be allocated to the next best ranked rider not yet qualified.

Riders applying (through their National Olympic Committee) for a tri-partite place must also compete in either its respective Continental Qualification Event or in the World Championships Qualification Events.
