Abstract: The author analyzed the new trend of world track and field umpiring work done in recent years, and concluded the followings: As track and field sports become internationalized, in respect to refereeing work, the position has been more standardized, the organization more simplified, the jobs more clearly defined,and the responsibilities more specifically assigned to individual referee,and irrational operating methods in the past have been changed. In addition,refereeing work embodies the new concept of “people orientated management” and meets the requirement of competition commercialization to a wider extent. The author provided a new reference for track and field refereeing work in China to fit in with international refereeing work.
Key words: track and field; refereeing work; new trend
