NCS girls track: Act of sportsmanship highlights wet championships

I am sure many of you heard about what happened in the girls' 800m at the NCS MOC meet. If you have not, you can check out Phil Jensen's article detailing what happened at the link below. I understand that many athletes compete very hard to defeat their opponents but the truth is that there is a lot of respect in the sport and this is an example of that which everybody could see.

You can check out the video of the race at this LINK.

I contacted rules expert Hal Harkness and this was his response regarding assistance during a TF event.
Under the current NFHS Rule Book that is good until January, 2020, 4-7-5-g.."It is an unfair act when a competitor receives assistance. Assistance includes:

g. Competitor receiving assistance from another competitor to complete the race. Both competitors shall be disqualified unless a competitor is injured or becomes ill and an appropriate health-care professional is not available, only the injured/ill competitor is disqualified."

Note: Every attempt should be made for the appropriate health-care professionals to make these decisions as to assistance.

There will be additional discussion at the National Rules Committee Meeting is mid-June regarding assistance and when it is allowed.
