RE: Should the US give back it's Mixed Relay bronze medal at World XC since it only got it because of this DQ (video)?

Remember when Quigley got dqed in the steeplechase heats for stepping like 3mm on the inside rail at london 2017? That was a bs call and totally took the US out of contention for sweeping the steeple. I dont think US should give it back but the IAAF should stop being completely anal about a few inches. Rules are rules and its hurt US in the past too

Disagree. They should 100% be anal even if it's as little as one proven millimetre. Otherwise the sport's integrity is shot because enforcing rules becomes a subjective opinion of any given meet organisers.

Same thing happened with Filip Ingebrigtsen at the Euro indoors. Yeah sure would have made no difference re him qualifying but if you don't enforce that when where do you draw the line? A guess at 2/3 metres is ok? 10 metres? Half a lap?! Just follow the rules and no guess work required...
