If not, then it becomes a way to simply invent a 9-throw competition, which is unfair to people who normally only have 6, and we'd have to seriously consider not conferring record status. (even if leaving the mark on the all-time list)
Reminds of the way some colleges run their invitationals: they have three sets of field events - unseeded, seeded and invitational. The home team competes in all three, so they have 18 attempts, or 9 jumps at a PR height.
The irony is that if they had had Wruck in two separate DTs, then T&FN would be fine with it. Their crime was to call it one comp.
