    That makes sense.

      The 100, 200, 110 hurdles, long jump, triple jump, javelin, etc. are straight or nearly straight runs, so the wind affects them.

      And wind aided doesn't nullify an attempt/race in terms of placement, it just prevents the setting of official new records if the wind is too strong in their favor.
      Thanks.

        It would be just like ski racing: the racers go solo and they can start whenever they want - their actual starts trigger the clock.

        Not a fan. I understand it, but not a fan.
        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

        • This Eagles (?) player that got dinged for 0.001 seconds, he plays defense, not WR?

          Cliff Branch is nonplussed, as is Ronaldo Nehemiah.

              • The rules are exactly the same for every single runner, and have been that way for a very long time. Sucks that he broke the rule by such a little amount, but he signed up to run the race based on those exact rules.

                And I'm totally against the idea of sprint races becoming some kind of time trial- the race is about the whole part- not just who is the fastest- it's who can run the best race.

                Drag racing is the same way- it's not the driver with the lowest ET or highest speed- it's who crosses the line first.

                It's a shame, sure. But I'm betting he understands the rule, and accepts the outcome. And I'm fine with that.

                  Yeah screw him, he's in total control of the exact number of hundredths of seconds in which he reacts.

                    I'm not being that harsh, but indeed he is. It's something they spend a lot of time practicing.

                    How do you define a false start and not have someone be 0.001 second off of that as some point? You can't say 0.100 +- 0.01, because that really means 0.090, and then 0.089 becomes the line to cross. It's terrible to be *that* close- but, again, they ALL signed up to run the race and compete knowing these are the rules.

                        Unfortunately, these rules are based on a flawed study and it's results.

                          If you think about it long enough, that is irrelevant. It's just a number that is close to human reactions. Move it to the actual study, and once someone gets DQd by 0.001 seconds, then the standard deviation in the study will need to be part of it. And the closer you get to the natural reaction time, the more likely you will get runners trying to guess the time.

                          The start is something they practice a HUGE amount, and for professionals, making it 0.1000 seconds is pretty clearly possible and very likely. A gross majority of competitors don't false start, afterall.

                          If the runners universally had a problem with 0.100 seconds, let them take care of it. Otherwise, they fully accept the time and the consequences.

                            I'd think you let the runners set their own rules, they're the only ones who actually know anything from doing it, and they're the ones who will have the most at stake preserving fairness and sanity.

                                It's not uncommon...

                                Back when I ran in high school (1999-2003), the big thing on the international level was charging ANY false start in the field to EVERYONE and then a 2nd being a DQ... The thinking was that me, being the slower runner, could try and time the gun. There would be no consequences for me to jump... And maybe play some head games with the faster people and cause them to sit on the 2nd start...

                                It's something that has always been on the minds of people...
