Each contestant will be allowed 3 throws or jumps in the preliminaries which will be run using the "Open Pit Concept" in flights of 8 jumpers or throwers;. Each flight will take 3 jumps or throws until all flights are done. The top 10 contestants will then jump or throw in the finals in the reverse order. There will be 3 tries in the finals. The tries by the contestants will not be consecutive in the finals. The revolving Flight plan as outlined by Federation Rules will be used in the Pole Vault and High Jump. Each individual toss in the Shot Put, Javelin, and Discus will be measured.
8. In the field events all warmups and run-throughs must be completed before the event starts. One run-through will be allowed, before each flight, to each contestant of that flight and one toss to each thrower as warmup. Twenty minutes will be allowed before each event for warmup. An extra run-through will be allowed in the pole vault and high jump if jumper passes more than 5 heights. NO extra practice will be allowed in unused event areas before or after an event.
