EUGENE, Ore. (30-Jun) -- Heartbreak gave way to hope here this afternoon for miler Gabriele Anderson when USA Track & Field officials reinstated her after she was disqualified last night from heat 2 of the 1500m semi-finals of the USA Olympic Trials.  She will now be allowed to compete in Sunday's final which will determine the USA Olympic team based on order of finish with Olympic Games "A" standard.

"The jury of appeals has met and will be advancing 13 people to the final of the women’s 1500m, including Gabriele Anderson," reported USA Track & Field official Katie Landry in an e-mail message to Race Results Weekly.

Also advancing will be Alice Schmidt who had originally finished sixth and had been moved up to the fifth place qualifying position based on Anderson's original disqualification.

"Thank God I'm back in the final," Anderson posted on her Twitter account.
