2018 World Indoor DQ'S





history was made at the world indoor championships in Birmingham on Friday morning when every athlete in a heat of the men’s 400m was disqualified.

 Qatari Abdalelah Haroun, who won outdoor bronze in London last year and was considered one of the favorites was given a red card for a false start. 

That left the remaining four athletes in the heat and initially it appeared that there a clean race.

However when officials looked back at the tape they realised that every remaining athlete in the field had committed a lane infringement by running out of their lane just before the end of the first lap.

In total 15 athletes have been DQ today on a legal but narrow lane track the has a steeper angel than most indoor tracks..Little or no warm ups for the athletes were allowed on the track before the races.

Many athletes have complained about the poor officiating at the meet... still a total of 24 athletes have been dq so far
