NCAA Changing The Rules In Swimming And Track
We’ve got some NCAA rules changes for all you lame sports lovers out there. In swimming there is now a no-recall false start, which means unless there is a blatant false start, the event would continue and the swimmer charged with the false start would be disqualified at the end of the race.
And then the NCAA is also going to start requiring pole vaulters to wear specially-designed helmets starting next year… so nobody misses the mat on the landing and dies like that dude did last year. [via]
