While competing in the 6,000-meter run, athletes are carrying weighted bags. Additionally, every lap adds weight to the competitor. The bags weigh 20, 30, 40, and 50 pounds. Unfortunately for Mat Fraser, one of his bags fell out during the last leg of the race.
Following this unfortunate incident, officials reviewed the run. Subsequently, they decided that Fraser was to suffer a penalty of 60 seconds. This adjusted his original time of 24:50.09 to 25:50.09. In the end, Mat Fraser would finish the event in 17th place after the penalty.
