False start for Usain Bolt – Blake wins 100m – World Athletics Championships
Usain Bolt false started in the 100m race at the World Athletics Championships in Daegu, South Korea. Under recently changed athletic rules, an athlete is instantly disqualified if they leave the blocks before the starting gun sounds. Bolt immediately knew he had false started and took his shirt off in frustration knowing he was about to be disqualified.
Fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake went on to take the title in 9.92 seconds ahead of Walter Dix 10.08 and Kim Collins 10.09.
Bolt’s next race is in the 200m heats on Friday 2nd September.
