Holding has been going on decades. I won a tri at Bridgeport on one of the worst holds I ever saw-after an amazing catch. It was a snowy end to a Saturday night program, and like a young then idiot, I left a family get together just before ten, catching last 4 games or so at Bridgeport-12 miles away.
The final point that evening, now with2 + inches in parking lot (I checked before game), Castro throws a perfect dejada off Tevin's serve. Tevin, a kid then, catches it just before bounce 2 at 4 line, barely over the floor. Refs watched him push his body up a good 6-12 inches, and throw a perfect backhand carom, and one foot appeared past the 3 line by that point.
He would have needed to do a looping flip if he did the old release where you catch.
I do not recall the year, but I am fairly sure Castro was not on the final 1995 roster, so likely this was a few years prior.
