Proposal 42: Make names of Jump disciplines more logical [ Revision 1 ]Committee: Jumps
Submitted on 2019-05-14
Status: Passed on May 31, 2019
The names of the four Jump disciplines in the rulebook are inconsistent, and not very clear.
This proposal is to rename some jumping disciplines throughout the Rulebook, i.e.
Rename "High Jump" to "High Jump over Bar"
Rename "Platform High Jump" to "High Jump onto Platform"
Rename "Jong Jump" to "Long Jump on Track"
(Keep the name "Long Jump on Platform")
I don't fully quote the old rule text and suggest new rule text, but I list all occurrences of the names-to-be-changed below:
For High Jump: 1C.2 (1x), Contents page of Jumps chapter (2x), 13A.1 (1x), 13A.2 (1x), 13B.1 (1x), 13B.7 (2x), 13D.4 (2x).
For Platform High Jump: Contents page of Jumps chapter (2x), 13A.1 (1x), 13A.2 (1x), 13B.1 (1x), 13B.8 (1x), 13D.5 (1x).
For Long Jump: 1C.2 (1x), Contents page of Jumps chapter (2x), 13A.1 (1x), 13A.2 (1x), 13B.1 (2x), 13B.9 (1x), 13C.2 (1x), 13D.6 (2x).
Note that due to the similar names, you can't do a simple find/replace operation. (There is a trick to that, though - ask me if you want to know.)
The new names are more descriptive than the old ones, and shouldn't cause confusion anymore.
