According to this article, two Sudanese athletes were disqualified from the Saida Marathon for making a jump start after they had finished first and second. As a result, a Lebanese claimed first spot.
This doesn’t add up. Couldn’t they have disqualified them at the start? Is there such a thing as a jump start at the Marathon to begin with? I mean unless it’s very obvious, no one checks who jump starts a marathon. In both cases, they should have been disqualified at the start.
of course they would stop them at the end of the match, enno should they run after them and tell them to stop? considering the amount of pple running at the same time.
Marathon officials usually stand at each checkpoint and could have told them to stop racing. They do that all the time in long races.
Where did you find these words of wisdom dude? In new articles you have been reading? There is no such thing as jumping the gun at the start of a marathon!
ya 3ayb el choum!!
the photo says 6 Km race not a Marathon
Which makes it easier to disqualify them at the very beginning!
Thank you. Corrected.
There’s nothing that indicates racism.. it’s either incompetence or collusion from the part of the organizers but that does not translate into racism.
So you’re saying it’s not racism?Oh what a perfect coincidence that the two Sudanese winners were the only ones caught cheating.Yep,it’s a coincidence.Purely coincidental that they were both non-Lebanese and dark-skinned.
Unless you have some circumstantial evidence other than the top two racers being from the same race, then yes that is too feeble of an argument. For example, is there a history of the Beirut Marathon Association discriminating against races? Any similar incidents?
Again, the organizers might have colluded to have the Lebanese racer win.. or the two Sudanese racers could have indeed jumped the gun.

Where are the experts accusing Beirut Marathon of racism?
