Official Causes Chaos In Men's 1500m Race In The US

An official caused chaos in a men's 1500m race in California on Friday.

As Pat McGregor led the way at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, an official casually wandered across the track, unaware that a field of runners was moving ever closer.

He would end up taking a number of athletes out of the race, including British runner Michael Rimmer.

The official would leave the track on a stretcher.
