2012 Track and Field
commendable but if it was done in Calif would she had been DQ'ed because she was assisted across the finish line. I remember the University-SF in XC where she courageously crawled to the finish line to help win the state XC-5 title. No one could help her because she would had been DQ'ed.
Funny how people fall in the state 3200 and no call. Or the pushing, shoving & passing on the inside of the 1600 (why kids try to squeeze between the rail and their competitor is besides me, the come up then push the leader off the rail... Illegal!). But in the 4x400 someone is cut off with no contact and there's the flag. Some consistency is in order.
"officials chose to ignore [the rule] due to the amazing act of sportsmanship"...... wtf? since when is THAT the criteria for making a ruling?
http://www.springfieldnewssun.com/springfield-oh-sports/high-school-sports/wls-state-champ-lends-a-helping-hand--1385613.htmlDQ'ing the two runners who were last and next to last would not have changed the final score or advancement to another meet. I am sure if it really mattered, someone would have filed a protest.
If I have learned anything this year from track is that the rules are unforced at will. They will screw over some while letting others go. Take the 100 meter winner this year. He clearly false started, the entire crowd gave out an "oh" a whole half second before the gun when he flinched and it was no wonder he had a great start, he started before the gun. How you can ignore things like people being pushed, false starts, ignoring rules, etc. but dq for boxers and sports bras not being a solid color is beyond me.
Let her have another chance! It's not fair, she fell down during the race, doesn't she get another chance?
"dq for boxers and sports bras not being a solid color is beyond me."With the current interpretation of the rules, these undergarments aren't subject to the uniform rules since they are typically covered by the uniform. Apart from issues with compression shorts, has there even been a recent DQ from sports bras?Note also that uniform and jewelry violations now receive a warning. The second offense triggers the disqualification.
Yeah, wait a second... She fell down! She should complain and claim she would have made the podium. Then the next time she races, she can do terribly and everyone will blame it on the emotional trauma of falling last time.
If you still have an issue with a previous incident, feel free to contact the ncs office. Don't use this forum anonymously.Thank you.
I thought the warning only applied to jewelry not uniforms. Is this incorrect? Does a warning get applied for both? hank
What a bunch of loser posting on this story. They have no clue what sportsmanship is about.
This young lady is all class and I commend the officials for bending the rules a bit and not disqualifing the runners. We have seen so much stupidity by schools and officials it is refreshing to see a change of heart in them for the kindness this young lady showed
