MOSCOW, Russia:

Jamaican officials have lodged a formal appeal following Kaliese Spencer's disqualification in the 400m hurdles heats at the IAAF World Championships in Athletics here.

Spencer was judged to have gone around and not over at least one of the hurdles, with Rule 168.7(a) which speaks to "Trailed left/right leg below the horizontal plane of the top of hurdle at the instant of clearance," noted.

Jamaica's Team Leader Trevor 'TC' Campbell, head coach Michael Clarke and other team officials, were at the competition's Technical Information Centre up to a short time ago, putting together the appeal, after reviews.

"Yes we will be appealing the disqualification," Clarke told The Gleaner.
