IMMAF chief executive Densign White has confirmed changes regarding the allocation of ranking points and medals for IMMAF – WMMAA Championships throughout 2019, with immediate effect.
Moving forward, a bronze medal will be awarded to both losing semi-finalists only if the bronze medalist has won a minimum of one (1) bout to reach the semi-finals. In addition, there will be no placement ranking points awarded for a losing semi-finalist that has not won at least one bout to reach the semi-finals.
As usual for all divisions, competitors will be divided into a bracket by means of a “draw.” A single elimination system is used to produce two (2) finalists, who compete for the gold medal. However, if there are only two (2) competitors in a bracket, then this will be a gold medal match with the loser receiving no silver medal and no second place placement points.
