Judith Hesse of Germany was disqualified last night from the Olympic women's 500-meter speed skating event in Sochi.

Unfortunately for her, she made two consecutive errors at the start line, forcing the officials to disqualify her. 

Starting at 2006 Torino Olympics, a skater is automatically disqualified when she commits her second false start. Hesse, second false start, though very slight (see bottom GIF), was noticeable enough to jettison her out of the competition.
