it looks like kemboi landed on the inside of the track inside water pit while passing the french athlete on teh 2nd water jump around 2:20 in the race
If the French actually protested over Kemboi stepping inside at 2:20 in the race, that's ridiculous. Whether it's a technical grounds for a DQ or not, it's a ridiculous thing to protest when it couldn't have had any conceivable outcome on the race and didn't harm Mekissi in any way. It's no better than high school refs DQing girls for earrings or wrong-colored underwear. It's just using crappy technicalities to get an advantage an athlete couldn't get through actual competition. If Mekissi gets bronze, it's tainted.
