Say What? Anderson DQ'ed from 1500m Final

Team USA Minnesota's Gabriele Anderson was disqualified from the semi-finals of the Olympic Trails women's 1500-meters after another athlete protested.

Read a story by David Monti on the matter HERE, and one in the Star-Tribune HERE.

Anderson originally believed she had advanced to Sunday's 1500-meter final after finishing second in her semi-final on Friday night.  Alice Schmidt replaced Anderson on the finals startlist after the DQ.

Anderson has petitioned to be reinstated in the final.
