Incident: A competitor did several attempts with an illegal puzzle without accepting the extra attempts

Status: Resolved

11e2 3d2 3k2a


Incident description and resolution:

A competitor competed with a cube where one of the stickers on the red face was a distinguishable shade from the others. This violates Regulation 3d2):

3d2) The colors of the colored parts must be solid, with one uniform color per face. Each color must be clearly distinct from the other colors.

The competitor did 4 attempts with this cube, and then did the last attempt with a legal cube. When the WCA Delegate asked if the competitor wanted to replace the 4 solves with extras (using Regulation 3k2a), the competitor declined.

As the round had a cutoff, the competitor did not make the cutoff after his first two solves (as stated by 11e2), so the WRC has decided to record the results as DNS, DNS. Because all competitor's attempts are considered DNS, the competitor has not started any attempt. Therefore, the competitor's result should be removed.
