IOC Late Athlete Replacement Policy

- Lausanne, Switzerland

Contrary to the ISU Events for which the ISU Rules for substitutes/replacements apply, in the case of the Olympic Winter Games the IOC Late Athlete Replacement Policy applies exclusively. Consequently, in case of urgent medical reasons, the IOC Late Athlete Replacement Policy for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games applies (see Attachment)
In agreement with the International Olympic Committee, the following time lines apply.
For entries related to Speed Skating events, it is possible to make athletes replacements only up to and during the Team Leader meeting for the Speed Skating Events, scheduled for 10.00 a.m. on February 5th, 2014 (See also ISU Communication No. 1841).
For entries related to Short Track Speed Skating events, it is possible to make athletes replacements only up to and during the Team Leader meeting for the Short Track Speed Skating events, scheduled for 11.00 a.m. on February 9th, 2014.
