But it is not illegal to leave room either. Just as Jamal can move into Burka's lane from the outside as long as she doesn't impede - which she didn't, and you have agreed.
The decision was a fair one - Rodriguez tried to run through Burka,(as Rowberry saw and her view at the time was better than ALL of ours) a little bit of room but not enough, or why did she have to step off the track? Burka clearly had lane one to herself, Rodruigez should have waited to see how it played out over the last 200m - it might have opened up in the next 100m. It's too bad for both as Rodriguez finished well, and Burka was left on the track. For all we know Jamal might have wound up third.
As to the idiots saying that Burka was done and slowing down?!! She had the lead for Christsakes. NO ONE, only she herself, knows how she would fare the rest of the race. Only idiots like the above posters say how others will respond over the last 200m - that's why they have the races, so that we can find out. Who would have thought that Malaudzi would hang on to the lead in the 800? He fought people off coming at him.
