Sport Judge steps back
Rune Svendsen, one of the international sport judges selected to be a Judge at the
World Championships 2013 decided to step back as a Judge at the World
Championships, as his wife, Steffi Svendsen with Jarl frá Miðkrika [IS1995184968], is
member of the German team. Rune decided this to avoid any actual or perceived
conflict of interest, even if he would not be allowed to judge the specific tests where his
wife would compete.
This (wise) decision is in line with the Fair Play section of the Code of Conduct in FIRO,
stating that all officials must be scrupulously careful to guard against any appearance or
actuality of interest. In all questionable cases it is always wiser to acknowledge a
possible source of a conflict and stand aside rather than permit suspicions to gain
As the number of judges is still sufficient, no other judge will be called on duty.
