Badloe is inside.


It was a dramatic medal race.

Three (!!) participants were disqualified for a false start.

France, Italy and Poland were pulled out of the water by the jury.

Those were the numbers two, three and four in the standings.

Badloe stayed out of trouble and crossed the line in second.

The first place is secured.

The gold medal is in.

Kiran Badloe is in second place.

It doesn't matter where the Dutchman ends up.

She is now eighth.

It's going in the right direction.
