‎5.1.1.5 It is legal to block players who are skating and/or stepping clockwise on the track.

Just as with 5.1.1.4, which explained that skaters standing still on the track may legally be blocked, today's rule explains that skaters skating in a clockwise direction may also legally be blocked. It is the responsibility of skaters skating in a clockwise direction to not block opponents while doing so, but their opponents do not need to avoid the clockwise skating skater.
