  • Master of Sport World Class (MSWC), equates to an international champion.
  • Master of Sport (MS), equates to national champion.
  • Candidate Master of Sport (CMS), equates to an athlete allowed on a national team.
  • No CMS ask to participate as veterans 3.
  • Other ranks, such as national rank are entry level ranks such as regional, or city winner.
