    That happened at the Polish NC a few years back in the 110H. One flight of hurdles was placed at the wrong point. The result wasn't quite as spectacular, though - IIRC, a couple of runners actually...

    But that list excludes Gong Lijiao, who would surely have won the junior title in 2008 had she bothered to show up.
