†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† the coaches meeting will disqualify an athlete from all sub-

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††† sequent running events.When a contestant who has qual-

††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††† ified in a preliminary, withdraws from competition, no sub-

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† stitute may replace him/her.If an athlete is excused from an

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† event by a certified trainer or a physician appointed by the

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† games committee, that athlete will be eligible for any and all

††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††other events entered unless the trainer or physician determines

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† that the athleteís health would be in danger with any further

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† participation.No event in the meet is to be held up because

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† a participant is engaged in another event.If a contestant is

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† entered in a field event which conflicts in the time schedule with

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††† a track event in which he is entered, he shall make advance

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††† arrangements with the official in charge of the field event to be

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††† excused from the trials until after the track event has been run.

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††† No track event will be held up to accommodate a contestant

††††††††††† ††††††††††† †††††††† Likewise competing in a field event.
