I can only recall that it was a few years after Moscow. I vaguely remember some pressure from Australia due to the Campbell situation but I don't know if this was cause and effect because the IAAF had a cleanout of similar odd rules (..that make us look stupid) in the 80's and it may have happened because of that.
