Hate that runners are disqualified after one false start in athletics. Aim of runner is to race as fast as possible, not avoid a false start [ldnhal]

IAAF one start rule brought in to avoid tactical false starts; and here I thought it was brought in to ensure TV viewers didn’t get bored [ldnhal]

"Until 2001, every athlete had the right to one false start … with the demands of television a major factor in the change" Best version [ldnhal]
twitter (feed #7)
It’s easy for Steve Cram and Seb Coe to say that the current version is the right one. They were middle distance runners, not sprinters. [ldnhal]

By bending over to the TV companies dislike off false starts the IAAF has shoot themselves with that starting pistol. [ldnhal]

And now, when their biggest star Usain Bolt, does not even get compete they might reconsider it. It should never have been there. [ldnhal]

The half-baked solution 2001-2010 (one false start, then punish whoever in the field who makes the false start) was even worse. [ldnhal]
twitter (feed #7)
and then to avoid "tactical first false starts" the IAAF introduced the horrible "one false start and you’re out rule". [ldnhal]

The IAAF false start regulations are as bad as FIFA’s reluctance to accept video refereeing. Why are sports run by old stupid men? [ldnhal]
