RE: Official 2019 Herculis Monaco Diamond League Discussion Thread
That incident in the 400m is simply symptomatic of the seemingly arbitrary enforcement of the false start rules over the last decade.

HOW is this not a DQ? Its not a "flinch" or a "wobble" that sometimes athletes get called for - its a reaction time infraction of which the rule is so clear.

Right now if I am a sprinter there is simply no way I step off the track if I false start. Why would I? And the worst thing is that 2 athletes ran an entire race (how the f%$k aren't there officials out there to stop the race at at least 150m?!) for nothing. Unreal.
