Posted by: Watch Athletics

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Veronica Campbell-Brown was competing in a 200m heat and ended up in Margaret Adeoye's (GBR) lane for the second half of the race. 

Luckily Campbell-Brown did not get disqualified since Britain's Adeoye was too far behind to be interrupted by the Jamaican sprint star.

 "She helped me get to the finish line so I'm not complaining." Adeoye who also qualified for the semi finals told BBC Sport after the race.
