On Friday, the FIS Cross Country Committee passed a new rule requiring that classic pole lengths not exceed 83 percent of an athlete's height. "The rule is intended to keep future athletes from double poling races (and micro-skating) with poles that are close to the head-height limit," explains U.S. head coach Chris Grover, chairman of the FIS Subcommittee for World & Continental Cups.
