I was at least 25 years old before I learned there was actually a word for it.

For the sake of this discussion, assume the rule is adopted at NCAA level and at some point the NFHS also adopts this rule. New and refinished tracks could be marked accordingly, but would schools...

NCAA proposed rule changes. Will trickle down?

Interesting. Exchange zone proposed to be 30 meters, eliminating acceleration zone. Field event trials (PV excepted) to begin within 30 seconds of athlete being notified they are 'up'. And more. ...

Hmm, I think I'd want my athlete to know. Especially if she gets passed with 80 meters to go in her distance event. 'Don't give up because 4th place was taken away from you, somebody who didn't give...

I don't understand why a camera at 1600 would not be sufficient for a record. Wouldn't it fulfill the requirements? Please educate me. Altor? Can you provide insight on this?

I would love to see it happen, but it is highly unlikely. To go from 4:04.82 in the mile to under 4 in the short amount of time left in the season is just not going to happen. On a related note,...

He has to have help. And how many volunteers are willing (and capable)?

Joe Bistritz basically time-trialed a 4:05.62 at the state meet in 2016. Studly.

Michael Hall 4:09.45 in 2013, 4:08.52 in 2014. Both at State Meet D1
Michael Vitucci 4:07.96 in 2014. State Meet D1

I think it would be cool to see Horter go after Bob Kennedy's 4:05.13 D1 record, still standing after almost 30 years. He would probably need help to shoot for sub 4, and I don't see that happening...
