    One problem is that all the jumpers have to re-place their markers. That takes time.

    And if they're using any kind of state-of-the-art measuring system (i.e., not a tape) that all needs to be recalibrated.

    Since conditions change for everybody, leave well enough alone.

    Beats the alternative, esp. in the PV, where a headwind can even make it unsafe.

    Believe it.

    It was something else to watch. Slow jog for three laps and then a mad dash for 400m.

    I did. And was reminded of when I was 19 and even I could have run the pace of the first 3/4s of the race.

    That is one of the exceptions.

    Of course, just like your opinion of my opinion does not matter. I did not know that is how they broke the tie - thanks - but I still think his jump was better given the 2.9 wind. If it's good enough to forgo a record because of and 'advantage' then it is good enough for me to forgo first place here. But it's not a big deal so calm down.

    And what if all jumps are over the limit? How are you going to handle that?
