Off to the races
What's the rule?
So you think you know the rules? Test yourself, thanks to the Professional Development Committee and official Mark Young.
The format is simple. Each week, a new situation is presented below and you can determine if the rule has been correctly applied. The ruling is published the following week. When you consider the situations, think about both college and high school rules.
Situation: The javelin lands (a) with the furthermost point (front tip) touching just prior to the javelin sliding along the ground on the shaft; (b) almost flat, but with the rear portion of the shaft touching slightly before the javelin slides along the ground; or (c) perfectly flat. What should the ruling be in each instance?
Rulings on situations are here.
