The Double Scoring System, where winning athletes receive medals, and overall winning universities (Men, Women, and Combined) are awarded trophies based on the Olympic medal tally system. National Federations with universities earning the highest medal tally also receive Overall Trophies (Men, Women, and Combined), recognizing both individual university and country efforts.
