In collaboration with the BF Ranking Manager, BF has published the latest version of the BF Ranking Scheme for 2022-23.
As part of the ADP’s ongoing strategy to encourage athletes to gain appropriate international experience and development opportunities, BF listened to feedback from the athletes and acknowledged the need to change the points calculations for Senior international and Under 23 competitions in the new scheme.
These changes are designed to appropriately recognise international performances and stabilise the points calculations caused by the cyclical nature of the FIE points system, in particular, post-Olympic Games.
Seniors and Under 23 Ranking Scheme:
Simplification of the calculation for multipliers of international competitions.
Fixed multipliers will be applied in the following table:
|FIE World Cups and Grand Prix||5000|
|World Championships and Olympic Games||6000|
|FIE Zonal Championships||3000|
|EFC U23 Championships (U23 Scheme only)
U17s (Cadets) & U20s (Juniors) Schemes
The new ranking scheme document can be found here: Ranking Scheme
For an indicative look at how these multipliers impact ranking points please see the following table. This level of detail is intended to support athletes when reviewing their competition and training plans.
