Kemboi DQ'd in Steeplechase for Stepping off Track


News came out hours after Wednesday morning's steeplechase final that Ezekiel Kemboi, who had initially won bronze in the event, had been disqualified for the lane violation depicted above. The French filed the protest and Mahiedine Mekhissi has been awarded the bronze medal. After Wednesday morning's race, Kemboi announced his retirement. He'll go down as one of the greatest steeplechasers of all time with two Olympic titles and four World titles in the event. This is an unfortunate end to what was a great career.
