Some interesting stuff with uniform requirement for weigh-ins and deleting hair length language.
I made this same argument to someone who complained on Facebook about it. I remember people being up in arms when undergarment was required from the times we could weigh in butt naked, making the same argument about underwear adding so much. And during these days of the alpha assessment (I know people still cheat the system), kids SHOULDN'T be cutting that hard that the uniform should matter.True, but if a 0.3 or 0.4 lb singlet causes someone to move up a weight class, they probably were in the wrong weight class to begin with, IMO.
My interpretation is that hair, skin, nails is part of the "weigh-in procedure" and that all competitors must be in legal uniform during the procedure. Not the guy to put a stamp on it, but I read this as uniforms remain on during the entire process which includes skin check. In other words, straps stay up throughout the weigh-in procedure.How will this affect skin checks?
I’m assuming chests still need to be exposed so then boys and girls will need to be separated again.
So how does this speed up the process?
