Gorman disqualification[edit]

During the race Australia's Melissa Gorman was disqualified (DQ'd) for unsportsmanlike conduct. Three days later, on Tuesday, July 20, 2010, following a protest of her DQ by Swimming Australia, FINA overturned Gorman's DQ, reinstating her result which placed her in third. This moved China's FANG Yanqiao (and the rest of the finishers below them) down one place; Fang moving from third to fourth. France's Aurelie Muller's similar DQ for unsportsmanlike conduct was also reviewed; however, her disqualification was not overturned.[3]
