Best Answer

* The length of the track and the width of each lane are specified by the IAAF. * If the number of competitor is more than ten in the 100 meter sprint event, then, preliminary heat races are held. The winners or the top sprinters will qualify for the next round. * Any sprinter with a false start will be warned after the first attempt. After the next false start, he will be disqualified. * The records may be made only on the track which is made of such a substance which allows runners to run with spiked shoes. * The athlete is not given any credit if he or she does not finish the race. * The time of the event has to be measured with a permitted automatic timing device. * The radius of the outside lane of the track cannot be more than 50 meter. * No athlete is permitted to run inside the inner curve of the track. Even stepping on the inner line of the track is not allowed.

The competitor has to complete the race at his/her best ability/shortest timing.

You must be behind the stating line at the beginning and you must not leave the blocks until the pistol has been shot, if you do this twice then you will be disqualified. You cant go into or put any part of your body in someone elses lane, this will be seen as obstruction and you will be disqualified.

Swimmer must dive on start. Swimmer must surface berfore 15 metres Kick must be an undulation i.e. feet must stay on the same plane no simultaneous kicking. Arms must pull symmetriacally under and recover over the water. Two hand touch at each end of the pool as well as finish. There are no rules as to whether a swimmer needs to breathe on every stroke For more information check out the FINA website for all rules and reguletions for competitive swimming

The event ends when a runner's torso (not the head, arm or leg) crosses the finish line.
