Marta Pen qualifies for semi-finals after protest

Portuguese Marta Pen will be present in the semi-finals of the 1,500 meters of the Tokyo2020 Olympic Games, after protesting due to the collision, confirmed the Olympic Committee of Portugal (COP).

The Mission of Portugal filed a protest with the appeal judge about the irregularity that delayed Marta Pen in the third series of qualifying, where she finished in 10th place, with 4.07.33 minutes.

The problem in question was that the Moroccan athlete Rababe Arafi, when she was ahead of Marta Pen, stopped suddenly when the Portuguese was going to the final «sprint» and forced her to stop.
