Update on Devon Allen's Disqualification from Agent Paul Doyle: "It's been stolen from the fans. It's been stolen from Devon and that's unfortunate."

Devon Allen's agent gives us an update. "Not to take anything at all away from Grant Holloway, he's an amazing athlete, but as competitive as Devon is, having already run 12.84 this year, running in front of the whole crowd, running for his dad, there's no way he loses that race and we'll never get to see it."
