I was contacted by an IAAF “A” measurer. He had been asked by his IAAF regional administrator to measure a course. He asked me for my opinion concerning what happened.
During the measurement he had a flat tire. His travel circumstances did not leave him time to fix the flat and re-do the measurement. Instead, he used the data of the lead rider. He rode behind the rider and saw that the lead rider rode properly.
When he submitted his data to his IAAF regional administrator he was told that the measurement could not be approved because the lead rider was not IAAF accredited.
The race director wants him to either refund the travel and expense money, or visit again and measure at his own expense.
I sent him the opinion he asked for. What’s yours?
