HARLOW Olympian Andrew Osagie was disqualified after winning the AAA Indoor 800 metres in Sheffield at the weekend.
Osagie had produced a confident performance at the event holding off the cream of British 800 metre racing including Mukhtar Mohammed (Sheffield), Guy Learmonth (Lasswade) and Paul Goodall (Norwich).
Osagie won the race in a steady time of 1:50.85, but disqualified shortly afterwards for running over the lane in the back straight on the final lap.
Osagie’s next challenge is the World Indoor Championships in Sopt, Poland, next month.
