Well, just when he thought he was talking home his bronze medal, disaster struck. IAAF disqualified him and stripped him of his bronze medal he won.
Frenchman, Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, who had finished fourth in the race, appealed against Kemboi for or stepping the track during the final race.
IAAF announced the protest filed by the French and decided to disqualify Kemboi after launching a probe into the matter.
“A protest was presented by the French team after the 3000m steeplechase men final against Kenyan athlete Ezekiel Kemboi … claiming he had stepped off the track. An appeal jury met and examined the video of the race, confirming that Kemboi, after clearing a water jump, had stepped outside the track on the curved part before the home straight.” The statement by IAAF statement read.
Oh my! Only a cold Tusker could put an end to the pain being felt right now by this bad news; now a medal has been taken from Team Kenya and this could probably affect our ranking!
