Breaking news!! Gabriele Anderson's DQ has been reversed. She's in the final!!! #Eugene2012
I just received a call (at 12:27 pm Pacific time) from Justin Grunewald, Gabriele Anderson's fiance, and he has told me that Anderson's DQ has been reversed and she is in the final. Grunewald told me. "She in. There is a God in track and field afterall." In an earlier conversation with Grunewald, he said the USATF has a dropbox website (that is password protected) that has lot of video coverage of races not available to the public. He said that there was an overhead view of the race that showed what lanes people were running in and you could see that Anderson hadn't done anything worthy of a DQ. LetsRun.com is hoping to see the video later today so we can provide you an account of what it showed. I asked Gruenewald if this meant Alice Schdmidt was out of the final and he said he didn't know anything about Schdmidt. He just knew that Anderson was in the final.
