Just hours after claiming a bronze in the men’s 3,000m steeplechase at the ongoing 2016 Olympic games, Kenya’s Ezekiel Kemboi was disqualified after Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad of France filed a formal complaint against the multi gold medalist.

Mekhissi-Benabbad filed a post-race appeal claiming that Kemboi, who finished with a time of 8:08.47, committed a lane violation. “When one makes the road less, this is not the (3,000-meter steeplechase),” Mekhissi said.

The International Association of Athletics Federation, the sports governing body, cited Kemboi for an “infringement of the inside border.”
