Outgoing ISSA ¬President, Discusses Champs Starter ¬Concerns and Legacy

Departing ISSA president Dr Walton Small says that the issues surrounding the electronic starting system implemented at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships (Champs) last week should not be seen as a negative but instead as something to learn from.

Many coaches, their athletes, and other track and field enthusiasts complained about what they described as inconsistent ¬officiating, related to athletes being judged to have false-started in various races, with some being ejected while others were shown warning or green cards and allowed to compete.
However, Small said that the equipment will continue to allow all involved at Champs to experience the meet under international conditions.
Small said the international standard which Champs looks to uphold is one of the legacies he is leaving behind that he is proud of.
