  • The Sweatshop SAL AGM was held on 12 December 2014. Two motions were passed. The first was to increase the second height in the pole vault for Divisions 1 and 2 to 1.70m for women and 1.90m for men. The second was to replace the women's 3000m by a 5000m in match 4 on an experimental basis in 2015 (and to switch round the 1500mSc and 2000mSc for all matches).
