* For the events with cumulative limits, each competitor will have up to 3 attempts. They will be eligible for the second attempt if the result (or time elapsed, for a DNF) from the first attempt is under the cumulative time limit. They will be eligible for the third attempt if the sum of the results (or time elapsed, for DNFs) of the first two attempts is under the cumulative time limit. If they reach the cumulative time limit during an attempt, that attempt will be recoded as DNF. Any uneligible or withdrawn attempts will be recorded as DNS.

See Regulation A1a2 and Guidelines A1a2+ through A1a2+++++ for more information about how cumulative time limits work.
