When I saw the news he DQed I figured he jumped the gun and tough shit that's the rules - having no idea he missed the reaction time limit.

The idea you can DQ leaving AFTER the gun goes off is quite possibly the dumbest thing I have ever heard in T&F.

When I ran sprints you worried about the gun and timing it correctly - but with hurdles you always seemed to worry about getting your steps perfect to get over that first hurdle - the thought of jumping the gun never came into mind ever.
