Andre Ewers is back in the men’s 200m and will line up in the semi-finals on Monday (30 Sept).

Ewers was disqualified for lane infringement on Sunday’s third day of the 17th IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019.

An appeal was filed by Team Jamaica following the disqualification of their athlete. Team Jamaica ask that Ewers be reinstated due to lack of visual aid from another angle.

“The Jury of Appeal met and after examining the video of the race of the alleged infraction was not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that a line violation was committed,” said the organizer’s release.

“The appeal was upheld, and Andre EWERS reinstated for the next round,” added the release.
