There's a reason you don't see elite 1500 women coming to Gabe's defense. It's because she has a reputation for this kind of dirty racing behavior. Case in point, the 2012 trials - and there it was not a nike athlete instigating the protest.
While you might be right (it does sound like there is some truth to that), in no way did GG deserve to be DQ'd here. Further, it is more drrrty to have the nike "swarm" come in and change a final decision.
