purely self interest here.
Was talking to a brother (family brother) about an incident @ Mt Sac Relays in 1969 in the Invitational 4x440 race. He was soph, never used blocks (have mercy here) and was the lead-off for the team - they had a pretty decent team; 3:16ish andf all had pretty high hopes of being in the hunt. Anyway our recollection was; as lead-off he false started, not once, not twice but three times ... disqualified on the third.
Both of us remember the same thing - but 3 false starts? (there was another guy who false started after my brothers 2nd one ... seems generous - especially when looking at the evolution of false start rules and compared to today's rules. I'm assuming HS rules were the same as open - back then.
For the old timers - three false starts? Or are we memory challenged.
