Been having a discussion after a 10k road race yesterday where 1st lady crossed the line before the 2nd lady, but the 2nd lady started further back in the field and ran faster on the chip than the 1st lady who was obviously faster on the gun time.
The 1st lady finisher didnt have many around her and sauntered in 4places in front in 39min 24sec gun time & 39min 18sec chip time
the 2nd lady finisher raced for a few miles with a group of 6 blokes in 39min 26sec gun time & 39min 12sec chip time
Who should have got the 1st prize?
first over the line or the fastest runner.
I say it is the first over the line because you RACE the field around you and run at that pace and it is a race not a time trial.
someone else says should be the fastest chip time because that is performance on the day.
Is first past the post fair as is in race rules?
or should we now start using chip time to determine actual result?
