Reinstated Algerian wins 1500m gold

London 2012 - Taoufik Makhloufi of Algeria storms to gold in the men’s 1500m after being temporarily expelled from the Games a day earlier for not giving his all in the 800m race. Makhloufi tried to withdraw from the 800m but didn’t meet the deadline and ran only 200m before abandoning. After a medical officer submitted evidence, he was reinstated and finds golden success in the 1500m.
