Q:我的成績顯示DNS/DNF/DQ是什麼意思?

A:在三鐵比賽中除了正常的顯示成績外,你的成績可能會出現另外三個結果,DNS、DNF、DQ。

第一,DNS (Did Not Start)報名但未出賽。

你有報名比賽但比賽當天卻沒參賽時,成績最後會顯示DNS。

第二,比較常見,DNF (Did Not Finish):出賽但未完賽。

成績出現DNF的可能很多,一是在比賽途中棄賽;二是成績超過各項限時,不僅僅是總關門時間,單項超出規定時間也是會被判DNF的。

舉例來說,IRONMAN 70.3 Taiwan 的各項限時為游泳: 開賽後1 時10分鐘;自行車:開賽後5時 30 分鐘;路跑: 開賽後8時 30 分鐘。

你自行車完成時間為開賽後6時,但之後跑步奮起直追,最後進終點為開賽後8時。儘管是在總關門時間內完賽,但單項超出規定時間,最後還是會被判DNF。

最後一種,DQ (Disqualified)被取消資格。
因犯規而被裁判或大會工作人員判定取消資格,最常見的情況通常是選手在自行車賽段時亂丟垃圾或是被判跟車,裁判攔下選手並告知需在進入轉換區時進罰時帳進行罰時。

選手在收到裁判的罰時判決後必須主動進入轉換區罰時帳進行罰時,轉換區及罰時帳的工作人員不會主動提醒選手須進行罰時,如果選手沒有在出轉換區前完成罰時,會因違反規則最後成績被判DQ。

下次看到成績時,如果看到是DNF/DQ,不妨可以先想想是不是單項超時或是被判跟車卻未罰時,如果成績還是有問題,歡迎到大會服務處反應,工作人員都會熱情幫你解答!

【IRONMAN Fact】

Q: What is DNS/DNF/DQ?

A: Aside from finish time, you may receive a DNS, DNF, or DQ for your race results. What do the abbreviations actually stand for?

1. DNS (Did not start)

When you have signed up for the race but are absent on race day, you will receive a DNS.

2. DNF (Did not finish)

You will receive a DNF for several reasons. Let’s talk about the two most common reasons. First, dropping out amid the race. Second, failure to finish within the cut-off time, – not only the race cut-off time but also the cut-off time for each discipline.

For instance, the cut-off times for the three disciplines of IRONMAN 70.3 Taiwan are:

Swim: 1 hour 10 minutes

Bike: 5 hours and 30 minutes of accumulated race time

Run: 8 hours and 30 minutes of accumulated race time

Therefore, if you fail to finish the bike leg within 5 hours and 30 minutes but still make it to the finish line with sensational 8-hour finish time, sadly, you will still receive a DNF.

3. DQ (Disqualified)

If you violate the race rules, the race referee or race officials can disqualify you from the race. The most common unintentional rule violation is forgetting to stop in the penalty tent in the transition area after receiving a time penalty. The race officials in the penalty tent or transition area will not provide any reminder about the time penalty and therefore it is the participants’ obligation to complete the time penalty in the transition area. Failure to do so can lead to race rules violation and receiving a DQ.

All in all, if you see any of the above abbreviations on your race results, try to think about the causes. Did you forget to complete your time penalty? Or did you exceed the cut-off times in any discipline?
