Helping Officials... One simple thing is to wear your numbers correctly One on the front and one on the back of your vest (except High Jump and Pole Vault) They are pinned securely so that when you compete a number does not flap, bend or come off. Therefore: 4 pins. Why on the back? So spectators can identify you more easily So judges can still record your number when you have gone through the finish Often finishes are very close and thus you have to turn and face the judges after running through the finish But we are fortunate as we use : In order to make our championships successful we require a great many officials The county track & field championships has 100 events !!
