#Champs2023 | Class Four 70mh foul-up forces organisers to re-do race
Officiating problems at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships have forced a re-run of the girls' Class Four 70 metres hurdles, which took place this morning inside the National Stadium.
The event will be re-run at 1:00 p.m. today.
There were problems with athletes approaching the first hurdle, as well as others midway the races.
After protests by some of the coaches the situation had to be fixed, forcing a re-run.
The Gleaner understands the distance to the first set of hurdles were not standard, forcing early and mid-race adjustments by the athletes.
