Quick overview of Academiathlon

1st stage Swim and Rubik’s cube

  • Basically, any swimming styles are accepted (e.g. breath stroke and back stroke). In some races, Organizer has authority to limit the swimming style.
  • If the race is held in swimming pool, the Rubik’s cube should not be turned within 2 seconds after Academiathlete touches wall or floor.  In other words, Academiathlete cannot turn his cube while standing on the pool.
