I didn't see the race. Side note: Dehiba is apparently a convicted DOPER under her old nationality.
She was going to lose to Dehiba in the continental cup 1500 and clearly tried to hook her arm and pull her back. sidenote: dehiba is cute.
WWE Smackdown the Kenyan version.

How is the fact that people are upset over someone trying to screw her out of a win by vicious illegal tactics making her a hero? Where are you reading anything like this at all? Which posts could possibly give you that vibe? Honestly.
Congratulations Nancy Lagat! So convicted drug cheat Dehiba is now some of the Letsrun posters heroine because she's white and uses drugs? That seems to be the vibe I'm getting from some of the posts.
Agreed. Not only that but she always seems to run with her arms really wide. You can tell this if you've seen her races in the past or even just at the Diamond League races this year. To me that's the thing that always stuck out about her and it was easy to pick her out in the field.
SERIOUSLY that was an accident. Nancy Lagat form was going and her arms was swinging wide at the same time Dehiba drifted slightly towards Nancy.
Langat also moved into lane 2. Dehiba did not change position in the final straight.

Why did she pull up so close to her instead of just running in lane 2 for the final 100m? It almost looked like she was trying to force Lagat to run into the rail inside lane 1- she had all 8 lanes to run in yet was easily trying to share lane 1 on the home straight.
Lagat's arms are always wide, it just seemed like as Dehiba was starting to merge into lane 1, she just happened to be caught in her stride. I was surprised they didn't tangle earlier on, but I would say definitely not Lagat's fault.
