    The flotrack commentary seems to be behind a paywall. Is the link below really what you think?

    To me, it is barely coherent, and completely misstates the rule(s). Everybody on this board knows that "stumbles a little bit, falls over the line" is not a false start.

    In the girl's 1600 at the Wisconsin State meet a girl at the start line lost balance a bit and barely touched over the line and was stepping back - she was DQed. This was even less of a 'violation' than for West. I would think that having it up to the discretion of the starter would make for some better outcomes.
