AUS Points

Top  Previous  Next

AUS Points is a point system for Australian swimming. The points are based on the average of the best 10 swims through 2007. This base time is assigned 1000 points. The formula used to calculate points is almost exactly the same as the formula for FINA points (actually the formula is the same, but the rounding rules vary slightly when the calculation of the points has a fraction). The logic of the 2007 base times is that this was the last year before the technical suits came into use. Also, in 2010, FINA changed from using the average of the top 10 best times to using the world record as the base time.


To enable AUS Points, click Set-up from the Main Menu Bar and then Entry/Scoring Preferences. Then click on the Scoring Awards tab and select the Special Point System combo box.
