    I see UKA have just published a summary of new rules/amendments so look a bit bizarre to me : eg.
    .
    Rule 188.. The weight of the U13 Boys Shot has been reduced to 3.00 kgs from 3.25 kgs.
    and
    Rule 240…Entries from any runners with a medical assistance dog may be accepted, subject to
    them being correctly registered and identifiable as such and the approval of the Race
    Director ……should be interesting in the 800m.
    .
    Apendix4 ….Additional Gender Categories (Road Races): A statement has been added to the effect
    that Competition Providers promoting road races may offer a third non binary gender
    option within their events
    .

    3kg Issue is same as 500g Javelin for U17W, just enforced by pressure from elsewhere.

    Changing to a 3kg shot seems very sensible as no other age-group appears to use a 3.25 while the 3 is also used by U17 and U15 women plus men over 80 and women over 75. It does seem little point in facilities having to ensure they hold sufficient stock of a weight just for under 13 boys.
