This must be a huge heartbreak after running so well in his heat.

All three Canadians in the men’s 200 metres at the world track and field championships were eliminated in Tuesday’s quarter-finals in Berlin.
Jared Connaughton of Charlottetown, P.E.I., appeared to qualify for the semifinals with a season-best time of 20.80 seconds, good for second place in his heat, but was later disqualified for stepping out of his lane.
News was better for Priscilla Lopes-Schliep (12.61, won her heat) and Perdita Felicien (12.58, second in her heat) as both made the women’s 100m hurdles final.
Both are medal contenders.
