Protest over finish[edit]

Due to a protest about the race finish, results from the race were delayed a day, until after a meeting on Thursday, July 23, 2009.[2] At issue was the USA's Fran Crippen's finish approach.[3][4]

On July 23, 2009, it was decided that Crippen's finish approach was legal and he was awarded the bronze medal.
