Before the DQ was announced David Oliver said contact occurs all the time.
I was then walking underneath the stadium after it was announced that Robles was DQd. Right next to this walkway with huge glass windows is this room two huge tvs in it. There were I think 3 people in there and they were showing the hurdles race on the tvs in super slow mow. The people were watching the screen and rewinding it pointing at things on the big screen. I even saw one guy contorting his body like he was trying to simulate what he saw.
I then thought "This can't be the appeals room" but it was. Then Korean tv discovered what I did and they set up there cameras with lights and started filming it all. (I had filmed part of it with my flip camera). A lady in the room came out and told people to leave. When I walked back by (the press walks right by this window and its glass windows everytime it goes to the mixed zone) of the ladies had her head in her hands and a look of anguish. I can imagine people on a jury being less stressed.
Then I turned and there was Andy Turner walking out with soe British officials. Not sure if he didn't know he might be promoted to bronze but he did not stay around for the press conference.
At the pres conference (we'll have highlights of this up later) Liu said he saw on tv that Robles was DQd in the doping control. Liu turned to Robles and said something along the lines, "Hey you were disqualified." Robles said really? and Liu said it was on the tv. They talked about it briefly and then decided to talk about something else like it was not a big deal.
After witnessing the appeals process I think it should be like the NFL. If you can't make a decision in 2 minutes the play stands. It would be better for tv that way too.
