USATF Competition Rules ●

RULE 163
RUNNING COMPETITION
3.
Each competitor shall run in a direct line after entering the final straightaway in all races
of two or more turns unless there is another competitor in his or her path.
4.
Any competitor or participant jostling, running across, or obstructing another competitor
or participant so as to impede his or her progress shall be liable to disqualification in that
event. The Referee shall have the authority to order the race to be re-held, excluding the
disqualified competitor or, in the case of a heat, to permit any competitor(s) seriously
affected by jostling or obstruction (other than the disqualified competitor) to compete in a
subsequent round of the race.

This is from the USATF rules. I watched the video several times and yes there was jostling and impeding. However I don't think the contact to Hasay was intentional, as Hasay moved closer to the inside on the turn and there was no way to avoid the contact. I also don't think the contact was significant enough for a DQ. I would be pissed to get clipped like that from behind, but it happens.
