  • High School Wind Aided

    For IAAF, a legal wind can be no more than 2.0 meters/second. Is there a uniformly accepted wind allowance for national (or state) high school records?

      Every state has the same: 2.0, but the obvious problem is that few actually pay any attention to the wind. Even if the meet (excluding all but the biggest) has a wind gauge, they rarely submit the readings. I know of many (MANY) marks that make our state list (and presumably T&FN's) that were probably windy, but no reading was submitted. I cannot even begin to imagine HOW Jack Shepard sorts out all the incomplete info for the HS Annual (which, by the way, I got today, thank you very much!). Suffice it to say, the rigor with which the IAAF keeps stats, is not in evidence at the HS level!

        Not to mention a lot of them probably had uniforms on which were inconsistent with teammates, and some of them even had jewelry on!!

        Makes me sick!
