Current Wording – Article 64 Observers on Course

  1. In a walk section, official observers should be placed where the entire section may be easily seen in order to score breaks. It is recommended that there be a minimum of one observer for each 100 yard increment. Each observer must submit a marked card for his assigned area indicating a score for each competitor – “0” for no breaks, or the number of seconds for any break.

Suggested Wording – Article 64 Observers on Course

  1. In a walk section, official observers should be placed where the entire section may be easily seen in order to score breaks. It is recommended that there be a minimum of one observer for each 100 yard increment. Each observer must submit a marked card for his assigned area indicating a score recording the number of breaks of gait for each competitor – “0” for no breaks, or the number of seconds for any break.

Reason for change

Breaks at the Walk are determined by # of strides, not seconds. Organizer and TD will set up scoring sheets for observers.

    There should still be a “0” designation mentioned, to have this placed on a card for no breaks in stride…..or by writing in “none”, or some such. So, would leave that part in.
