Looking for Sport Event Insurance?
Sport Event Insurance
Many sporting events such as triathlons, ultra-marathons and obstacle course races in Malaysia and around the world do not provide personal accident insurance or sport event insurance for their participants.
Instead, it’s up to the athlete to have their own PA or sport insurance package.
Most of the time, you’re asked to fill out an indemnity form whereby you tick a box saying you are responsible for any accident or injury to you and other people.
In general, this statement releases event organisers from all liabilities for any death or physical and mental injury resulting from risks of the event or negligence by the organiser. As an event organizer paying for sports event insurance is an extra expense and many shy away from it to increase their profits.
Basically, they are removing themselves from any unforeseen claims from participants or third parties.
Additionally, by ticking the “release” box, event organisers could be tempted to lower their safety and security measures. This is fine, but where does that leave you? What happens if something goes wrong and you’re not insured? Who’ll look after you and your family? Only three weeks back a man died competing in the Port Dickson International Triathlon. Reports say he drowned. Could he have been helped with greater precautions and more staff on location?
It’s understandable some event organisers drop insurance for an event, considering the cost for sports event insurance can range from a low to a very high, five-figure amount.
But, that shouldn’t mean you have to take a risk with your safety.
