Wild guess: when someone is disqualified, they're usually marked DQ on the results board. There are various reasons for disqualification; maybe WL is one of them (Wrong Lane).
Another one that may well appear after distance races (or in the sprints if someone is injured): DNF (the obvious 'antonym' of DNS).
