After re-watching the race I agree with the DQ, but it still sucks and I feel like the Frenchie sat for 4th knowing he would get a medal. It is almost like he figured he wouldn't win, so he might as well run good enough for fourth because he saw the flag go up, and that just seems like poor sportsmanship.
But Kemboi does pass like 6 people on that water jump inside the lane.
I never steepled. If the red flag goes up, would you sit for 4th? Do they DQ every time the red flag goes up? Or do sometimes officials confer and rule it's ok? Seems kind of risky to not go for it and assume that you'll move up a spot on a DQ.
