  the Start Hurdle the competitor will be Disqualified. 
" The Judge will blow a whistle if an error is made and the Competitor shall immediately 
  leave the course (and not start the Speed segment).
" If no error is made in the Power Segment the Competitor may continue on and run
  the Speed Segment of the course.
