Curious Races in Ostrava

At this season’s Super Grand Prix in Ostrava there were two curious running events. First it was an official who had an impact on the race. Then an athlete made a strange mistake and missed out on a possible good result. In the 3,000m steeplechase the final lap was signalled 400 metres too soon. The Kenyan Paul Koech didn’t notice the fault, increased the pace and raised his arms when he crossed the finish line. By the time he realized that there was still one lap to go it was too late.
