Judo - Golden Score Rule

1. When the time allotted for the contest ends and the scores/penalties are equal, the result of the contest shall be decided by a 'Golden Score'.

2. The time clock will be reset as if for a new contest.

3. Any scores shown on the scoreboard will be cancelled.

4. The referee will restart the contest in the normal way. There will be no rest period between the end of the original contest and the start of the 'Golden Score' contest.

5. The first score or the first penalty awarded will decide the contest.

6. The contest ends immediately there is a score (or penalty). For example if a player is being held (osaekomi) and the hold continues for ten seconds - a koka is scored and the contest ends. The competitor has won by a 'koka'.

7. If the 'Golden Score' extension contest goes the full distance without a score (or penalty) then the result will be decided by the referee and two judges, who will indicate the winner by raising the appropriate coloured flag. This will be indicated on the contest sheet as a 'Hantei' win.
