The fair judgment in sports events and the role of referees who make decision are very important.
Today, I would like to introduce the referee’s jobs. Referees are often considered as a very strict due to their nature of the job. They are not just sitting back and watching athletes' performance. Judges are preparing facilities personally and checking the stadium carefully before the event starts, for making accurate decision and judgments. That is their most important and sacred assignments.
In general, the appearance of judges are mostly standing and monitoring the events
happening. Referees have to notice all risks such as wind or other natural disaster in order to watch the event personally. Other cardinal principle in refereeing is to keep their best place to watch the event. Therefore, throwing is the most dangerous athletic event for referees. The most important thing to referee is making ‘correct decision’.
All referees for the IAAF World Championships 2011 Daegu will be domestic. The IAAF will supervise referees but all operation will be done in Korea. We are looking forward to see a clean and fair judgments’ in 2011 IAAF Championships.
