Auckland lapped runners
Having watched the highlights of the Auckland WTS races was interested to see Yonah drafting behind Jonny Brownlee having been lapped. He appeared to be warned by an official in transition at the start of the last lap but continued. It seems he was later disqualified For running with an athlete having been lapped. Fair enough.
The interesting issue is that in the women's race a similar thing happened with a more disturbing twist.
The ladies second place Zaferes lapped her compatriot Kasper and Kasper then dropped in behind as per Yonah in the men's race.
as the coverage cut back and for to the leader and Zaferes it appears that she was then clearly taking a tow off the lapped runner Kasper yet to date neither has been DQ'd.
I'm confused and not a little disappointed given what Andrea Hewitt was penalised for. Was she wrongly denied second??
