If you weren't up really early this morning, you missed that the US originally finished 4th in the mixed relay but was upgraded to bronze after Morocco was DQd for handing over the sash too early.
Take a look at what they were DQd for.
Mind you, no material advantage was gained. If you were going to hand off early to try to cheat, you'd have a woman hand off early to man , not vice versa.
This is yet another example to me of where the IAAF should pick up the flag and not call a DQ.
Does anyone know how this came about? I sure hope it wasn't because of an US protest.
Update: After an appeal, Morocco has been reinstated, moving the US back to 4th.
