Dear community, An investigation has been conducted into an incident during the Multiple Blindfolded event at Stockholm Open 2014, in which a competitor (under 18 years of age) was receiving information verbally from his judge (under 18 years of age), and the judge was intentionally not holding the card in a position such that the competitors view of the cube was blocked, allowing the competitor to peek under his blindfold. Gunnar Krig, the delegate at this competition, noticed the incident, made some initial enquiries, and eventually received a confession of guilt from the competitor. The WDC investigation involved the delegate, the competitor and the judge, and found both the competitor and the judge guilty of intentional cheating. The following action will be taken: - The Competitor will not be allowed to compete in any WCA events until the end of 2014 - The Judge will not be allowed to compete in any WCA events until the end of 2014 Best regards, WCA Board Supported by Gunnar Krig and the World Cube Association Disciplinary Committee (WDC)
