She did break the rules, but the rules need to be evenly applied and disqualify any others using ipods as well.
BTW, this is the stupidest rule that I have ever heard of.

3:02 in crazy fast!! how fast was the original winner's time?! It's amazing that the two lead people are both disqualified for miniscule things. They both broke the rules and sound like they might not take it incredibly seriously. They may be fast, good runners- but they should accept consequences if they choose not to obey guidelines directed by the competition. (And yes, I realize what I just said on a JB community forum... but I accept my own consequences as well) ;-)

I don't get why they are not allowed to listen to their ipods. That is by far the dumbest rule that i have ever heard. It's not going to make a difference whether or not she is listening to music.

Kind of unfair. They should have told her off during the race rather than after she won. It's their fault for not noticing before the end of the race.
I can see why it's against the rules but I kinda understand why someone would listen to music while running; it'd keep your mind off of how much further you need to run.
Also, just a 'did you know?', sweat/liquid + ipod earphones = electrical shocks to the ears.-Mattymoo
just like you imagined.

I still think marathon/cross country runners are crazyI always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

they are going to say something far fetched as an excuse, like, "study proves that use of any music device during running helps the person run and makes them last longer"

Im sorry, its just ridiculous.
Im a runner myself and I use my iPhone for all my runs. Saying its a danger to other runners is like saying a radio is a danger to other cars on the road.
Its quite simple really, when you run you stick to your line and you will be fine. If you intend on changing that line, look back so that you dont possibly run into any runners that plan on overtaking you.
Not only that, but when I listen to my music, I dont have it so loud that I cant hear anything else. If you have your volume at a decent strength - then you can enjoy your music and still be able to hear should anyone yell at you for whatever reason.
I'm glad that in South Africa we don't have such ridiculous rules such as these... yet.

its a safety issue. it has nothing do to with performance or relaxation. when you have music in your ears, you cannot hear things like cars and trucks. holding races cost money for insurance. if a runner dies because of they run in front of a car, the race director may be sued. in our litigious society, race directors are only protecting themselves.

Apple should give her an endorsement for sparking up free publicity.
