my b, announcers said you were automatically DQed for a false start
"4. (a) In a Track Event, if an athlete makes an immediate oral protest against having been charged with a false start, a Track Referee may allow the athlete to compete under protest in order to preserve the rights of all concerned. Competing under protest shall not be allowed if the false start was detected by an IAAF approved false start control apparatus, unless for any reason the Referee determines that the information provided by the apparatus is obviously inaccurate."
My bad. I saw it in a bar (no volume). Saw it again yesterday, and you sir, are correct!
I will never understand people.
They're the worst!
