Even though Van Wyck native Shawn Crawford didn't bring home the gold, family members and other local supporters are prouder than ever of his 2008 Olympic performance.

Stepping on the line is different from stepping out of the line. USA think ther are "god" that they see, they hear, they know everything. What difference would it have made because non of the sprinters did not dsturb non of the runners. I think they should eliminate both disqualification with the reason that " non of the 2 sprinters did not disturb anybody" and then everything would go back to normal. Churandy would receive his medal.

Winning by running the race is real winning. Winning because someone else got disqualified is not winning. Lets say Churandy did not step "on" the lane would Shawn Crawford still win?/ NO NO and NO, because Churandy is faster then both USA sprinters.

It's not about disturbing others. It's about the rules. Just like cheating in a class doesn't disturb others but once you are caught it's a "0" you get. The same goes here, there are rules and Churandy has learned a valuable lesson. It's regrettable but we must learn to accept this. I'm a perfectionist so i have no trouble accepting this loss.
