Conformation of the following can be confirmed:
• All the documentation was valid and up to date
• That their safety speech was satisfactory before commencement of the games
• That they have a first aider qualified and present on site at all times
• That the chronoing procedures were in accordance with the I.A.A. “Good Chronoing Guide”
