Orlando ORTEGA - 110mh bronze medal at 2019 World Championships.

The photographs above shows the last two hurdles of the final. In the smaller image defending

champion and 2016 Olympic gold medallist Omar McLeod is stepping into Orlando's lane.

In the larger image Omar is elbowing Orlando.  As a consequence McLeoad was disqualified and

(after a protest) Orlando was awarded a bronze medal.

On the left Orlando Ortega in action during heat 5, in lane 9.  And in his semi-final on the right in lane 4.

In both races you can see he almost encroached into the adjoining Lane. But did not. In the Final Omar McLeod did !
