  • Red flag in WC 1500m ?

    IAAF Rules clarity review seems needed here.

    A track event Umpire lacks authority to make a final decision, instead raises a Yellow flag and makes an immediate written report on the incident to the Referee. -- IAAF Rule 127

    A field event Judge indicates the validity of a trial [jump or throw] by raising a White flag or non-validity by raising a Red flag. -- IAAF Rule 126

    The Referee shall not act as a judge or umpire. -- IAAF Rule 125 (Actions that a referee can take include declaring "an event void and be contested again either on the same day or on some future occasion.")

    Umpires commonly observe from the track's outer edge. If a Red flag was raised by an on-field judge, it may have been to signal that a long jumper or javelin thrower stepped over the foul line.
