Yes! I wasn't at the race, but did watch it on TV, and the protest seemed bogus, especially since the runner who filed it finished almost two seconds behind Anderson. The contact was minor in that context.

Since no umpires raised a flag AND no referee saw a violation, the jury of appeals was correct in letting her run. Anderson should never have been DQed under this situation anyway!

It's a semi-final for a spot on the Olympic Team--there'll be bumping. After reading this, you wonder what was going with DQ. Go win it outright Gabrielle.

How does that work? One person can arbitrarily say that person caused me not to run as well? Are you guilty until proved innocent? "Yeah, everyone in front of me caused me be in last place. They should all be disqualified!" /s
