    Do not agree re-run is fair. Runners are not robots to be rewound to the same settings.

    And obviously not workable at longer distances and where would you draw the line.

    The overwhelming precedent is that what happens in a final is final, subject to the incremental displacement of a DQ.

    Why a bronze if he was in silver position when the interference occurred? I say give him a silver or nothing.

    Agreed!

    Now Irina Shevchenko should be awarded a medal for Athens 2004 100H final!
    If you folks don't remember, Perdita Felicien hit the first hurdle and stumbled into her.

    What a TRAVESTY!

    I don't think there's any question of re-runs over longer distances.

    I think only in straight hurdle races would it ever really be considered.

    It happened in the women's 60H at the World Indoors (Toronto 1993?). Also, I think, in a 100h semi in Montreal '76 and the final of the '78 European 100h final.

    If I'm Liu Xiang I'm now anxiously awaiting an invite from the IAAF to accept my retroactive duplicate-gold from the 2011 championships!

    I would bet the IOC and IAAF will immediately go into conference to discuss that possibility, if he so much as even twitches or tilts to the right in his semi. He's a walking pinball machine these days.
