24.117.1204    TIME LIMITATIONS

(1) Athletic events shall be limited to two hours of continuous wrestling, except as herein otherwise provided. Should neither contestant have a marked advantage at the end of two hours, the referee, in his discretion, following a five-minute rest period, may order the athletic event continued for an added 30 minutes. If, at the end of the extra 30 minutes, the referee is unable to decide the winner, the athletic event shall be declared a draw. However, if one of the contestants gets a fall during the extra 30 minute period, that fall shall be the deciding fall and he shall be declared the winner.

(2) Should there only be one fall in the two hours of wrestling, the winner of that fall shall be declared the winner of the athletic event. If each contestant has gained one fall in the two hours of wrestling, then the referee may allow the athletic event to continue after a five-minute rest period for an added 30 minutes. If at that time neither of the contestants shall have gained a fall and the referee is unable to declare a winner, he shall then declare the athletic event a draw.

(3) In athletic events of less than two hours duration, when the referee is unable to give a decision in a close match, he shall have the power to declare such athletic event a draw, if in his opinion this would be a just decision.
