Shaunae Miller did complete 400m fully. She begin it with her entire body behind the start line, and then her torso across the finish line. Thus the distance is greater than 400m. If we want to be specific, she probably covered 401m (actually more, but 401m in terms of how lanes are measured). Also, what she did is not against the rules in any way, nor is it abnormal.
Sorry, not the same logic. The same logic would have been Shaunae Miller stepping on the inside of her lane around the turn.
You mean her 'torso' went 400 meters and then some. That's crap! Her entire body should be required to go the 'full' distance, not just the upper portions of her anatomy. The 'rules' are crap as well! But like I said, I don't have a problem with the leaning into the tape or line 'torso first rule' - that's absolutely fine and expected. But then..... to not cross completely as the 'second place' athlete then does completely before you even get your entire body over is BS! What part of 'you' is defined as "YOU" - just your upper body? Last time I looked, my ass, shalong and legs were all part of me as well - if they don't finish, then I don't finish?????
If Kemboi is being technically punished because 'part of his body' didn't go the full 3000k, then 'part' of Miller's Body didn't go 400 meters either before the next competitor fully crossed the line! Kemboi finished well ahead of the 'French Jerk-off' even if you gave him a full second as a penalty for stepping out 4 inches.
You want it both ways! Punish Kemboi for a 'distance infraction' but then award Miller for committing the same one.
This is a double standard!
IF AN ATHLETE DOES NOT COMPLETE THE DISTANCE ENTIRELY WITH 'THEIR OWN PHYSICAL BODY' THEN THEY DO NOT HOLD THE PLACE THEY WERE AWARDED AT THE LINE!
Half of one foot on a line does not mean he went less than the total distance - if he ever at any point ran in the 'outside' of lane one or even into lane 'two' then he went more than 3000k! (assuming the total 3k distance is measure 30cm from the line on the inside) What they're saying is illogical and impossible unless he were to actually stay on that 30cm mark the entire way around for all those laps without ever deviating - can't be done son! Every single competitor in the race runs slightly more than the total 3k - so the one 'half step' over the line in no way is a cheat on the total distance! Running fully into another's lane is obviously wrong but if a foot happens to touch it - its no big deal and should NOT be considered an infraction especially if it does not impede another runner in any way! Was 'Mr. Frencypants' so stressed by Kemboi's half foot on the line he had to complain to daddy official - what a F'ing FTARD SUPREME!
