From the "lesson learned" file comes this from the California state track and field championship:

Pole vaulter Evan Barr of Loyola High School in Los Angeles finished in a tie for third place. That would have given his team enough points to win the state boys championship on Saturday.

Barr, however, was disqualified after he loudly said a profanity following his final miss in the event.

"He uttered a profanity out of frustration, and the officials thought it was significant to disqualify him," Loyola coach Mike Porterfield said. "He apologized immediately after he said it."

According to Hal Harkness, the state rules interpreter, "You can't be profane in a competitive area. He made an unfortunate lapse in judgment."

This rule is pretty standard, at least where I went to high school. No profanity during competition. All athletes were warned before the event began. Only saw the rule applied on one occasion. A costly mistake, to be sure.

sounds fair to me. If it's a rule and he broke it he has to pay consequences. Even if it's one of those obscure rules they only seem to enforce when the stakes are high
