Start permission and starting time control at Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cup, Grand Prix and Continental Cup competitions will be determined by means of a three-colored (red-Yellow-green) stoplight and a digital clock which are connected and running automatically depending on the adjustable starting rhythm program.
During the red phase (start preparation) the clock runs backward from the adjusted time to zero seconds. The red phase is for the direction of the competition and can be stopped whenever needed. During the consecutive yellow phase the clock runs forward. The competitor is allowed to take the position on the starting bar with the begin of the yellow phase.
According to the external conditions the Jury decides about the minimal duration of the yellow phase (usually between 10 and 15 seconds). The duration of the yellow phase can be between 10 and 45 seconds. If the conditions do not allow the competitor to start, the yellow phase switches to red automatically. In this case the competitor must leave the starting bar and prepare for the new starting procedure.
The yellow phase switches to the green phase after 10 seconds at the earliest. With the switching to green light, the starting time begins and will be finished after 10 seconds. Within these 10 seconds the competitor must start and leave the starting bar. The light automatically switches back to red and the starting procedure for the next jumper begins.
