Pointing at the Sky is "Excessive Celebration" at Track Meet Win?

This seems far fetched to me. Anybody know more? There must be more than this reason for the entire track team to be disqualified. And if it was simply because he pointed at the sky, I have to agree with the father. They would dismiss most basketball players and football players for their little victory dances if this were the rule everywhere. We should let people celebrate, even if the celebration is religious. Some would say especially if the celebration is religious due to our legal freedom of religious practice.
