Watch Kemboi’s lane violation that cost him steeplechase bronze medal





Hours after he claimed bronze in the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, Kenya’s Ezekiel Kemboi was disqualified after Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad of France filed a formal complaint.

Kemboi’s disqualification moves Mekhissi-Benabbad from fourth to bronze.

Mekhissi-Benabbad’s filed a post-race appeal claiming that Kemboi committed a lane violation. It was upheld by the International Association of Athletics Federation, the sport’s governing body, which cited Kemboi for an “infringement of the inside border.”
