The grey shading is for aesthetic purposes only. You may use some other colours to determine shaded and unshaded areas.

The unshaded cells do not need to be a single contiguous region, only the shaded cells need to be. The unshaded cells just have the shape restrictions.

I tried to solve last few Time Trial puzzles in Penpa, but there is no Undo/Redo button.
Is that intentional or is it just some problem on my side?

Penpa has a Contest Mode which prevents solvers from using the undo function, I think this was used for the later time trials.

The clone function can still be used in contest mode.

Question for boxing - the answer code for example puzzles should be 3,3 right?

You are right. That seems to be pasted from some other puzzle's key. It should be 3,3.

For the Canoeing Time Trial, do we put commas between each co-ordinate? (eg. "H1,J2,J4,I6" or "H1J2J4I6")

No commas or spaces. Only letters and digits. We have put that message on the key space too.

Uh oh, the rules for Aqre are wrong in the Instruction Booklet! Aqre has a rule that *you cannot have 4 unshaded cells in a row, anywhere in the grid*. This is not mentioned in the rules, and it is not used in the very-shaded example.
So anybody trying the Basketball Time Trial is going to get very stuck one third of the way through unless they know this...

(For those who find the puzzle unsolvably hard, the rules were missing that no 4 adjacent unshaded cells can appear either, had to look up the Aqre rules during the trial on puzz.link.)

(Edit: posted simultaneously to the above)

We are very sorry about the missing rule. Thanks James and Philipp for pointing it out. For now we have added a note in the submission page which hopefully helps anyone who will try the puzzle in the future. Beyond that, we will discuss it and see if more action is to be taken.

Thanks for the hint about the missing Aqre rule. I spent way too much time on it.

After some internal discussion we have decided that the individual winners of Time Trial 8 and Time Trial 32 will stay, and the medals from these rounds will not count to country tallies. We will sort that out in the Hall of Fame page in a while.

A combined PDF of all 33 Time Trial files is available here - https://logicmastersindia.com/lmitests/WSPC_2021_T00_PB.pdf

Note that this is a combination of the competition PDFs as they were without any updates for issues like multiple solutions or wrong rules. One prominent example is, in Puzzle 32, Aqre, there must be a rule added that "there cannot be a continuous line of 4 unshaded cells in any row or column". The other major point to note is that in the Pentathlon, the Word Search has a an alternate solution. If in doubt it may be best to visit the progress page and go to the relevant competition page to see if anything is noted.

Thanks to IHNN for helping us put this together.

The link to this PDF is also there on the landing page in the first row of the Time Trials Table (which is now a combined table of all 33 time trials).
