Though if he really did make a false start, I don't see why the judges wouldn't have called him out on it.
I watched the race... the only reason they're bring this up is because there was some controversy over his medal wils in Salt Lake City. The start was clearly fair.
As did I, he did seem to lean forward a bit before the start but if it really was agaisnt the rules, they likely would have called him on it.
Well, I did see it as a false start on the replay, but it's a moot point. What the umps don't call...
Definitely a fun sport to watch, especially when things go haywire!
