Makhloufi, who had already qualified for tomorrow’s 1500m final by winning his semi-final, ran in heat five of the first round of the 800m yesterday but failed to finish. “Makhloufi did not finish the race.
The referee considered that he had not provided a bonafide effort and decided to exclude him from participation in all further events in the competition under Rule 142.4,” the statement said.
