Usain Bolt 100 metres disqualification at 2011 in Daegu, South Korea.

Ohh wow, this is rather shocking news. The 100 metres sprinter king was disqualified at the 2011 IAAF World Athletics Championshim in Daegu, South Korea.

This is very a very dissapointing news. I believe after this there will be a real debate on the IAAF new rules.

Below is the video of Usain Bolt's 100 metres disqualification at the 2011 IAAF World Athletics Championship

Heartache for the 100 metres World and Olympic Champion and World Record Holder, Usain Bolt who was disqualified in the 100 metres men's final at the IAAF World Athletics Championship in Daegu, South Korea.

Bolt, the mercurical Jamaican who holds the current 100 metres world record at 9.58 secs, was disqualified after he false-started, that is off the starting block too soon before the starter gun exploded.

The incident stunned Daegu and stunned the world.

Why did this happened to the world's best athlete?

IAAF is stupid too for introducing the stupid new rules of disqualifying a runner for one false start. It should be disqualification after 2 false-starts as being practised in the past where 1 false start leads to caution and 2nd false start by the same sprinter or runner, leads to automatic disqualification and the runner has to leave the track.

Heart-ache for Usain Bolt for he trained hard for 2 years for this occasion, to defend his world title and possibly to shatter his own 100 metres world record.

After being asked to leave the track, Usain Bolt was heard shouting loudly near the stadium's entrance.

He also argued with a Korean official who persisted in asking Bolt to leave the track immediately.

In the subsequent 100 metres final race, Usain Bolt's Jamaican compatriot, Yohan Blake wins the 100 metres race in 9.92 secs ahead of USA's Walter Dix and 2003 World 100 metres Champion, Kim Collins.

Well, Kim Collins leads the race up to 70 metres before being overtaken by the super accelaration of Yohan Blake. Collins was pipped into 3rd place at the finishing line by Walter Dix.

The result is among the slowest 100 metres final ever seen in the history of the Olympics and the world championships. Only 1 runner, that is the winner Yohan Blake dipped below 10 seconds.

The full result of the poor 2011 IAAF world championship 100 metres men final in Daegu, South Korea

Gold - Yohan Blake Jamaica 09.92
Silver - Walter Dix United States 10.08
Bronze - Kim Collins Saint Kitts and Nevis 10.09
4th Christophe Lemaitre France 10.19 (European Champion)
5th Daniel Bailey Antigua and Barbuda 10.26
6th Jimmy Vicaut France 10.27
7th Nesta Carter Jamaica 10.95
8th Usain Bolt Jamaica 9DISQUALIFIED)

Notabale Absentee - Tyson Gay - USA (personal best 9.69 secs due to hip injury) and Asafa Powell (Jamaica) personal best 9.72 secs due to groin injury.

The best 100 metres race was in the 1991 World Championship final in Tokyo, Japan where 6 runners dipped below 10 seconds.

The historic race was won by USA legendary sprinter and long jumper, Carl Lewis in then world record time of 9.86 seconds, erasing the old record of 9.90 secs set by USA's Leroy Burell.

The 1991 IAAF World Championship, 100 metres full results, Amazing isn't it :

Gold - Carl Lewis (USA) 9.86 World Record
Silver - Leroy Burrell (USA) 9.88 PB (previous world record holder)
Bronze - Dennis Mitchell (USA) 9.91 PB
4th. Linford Christie (GBR) 9.92 ER
5th. Frankie Fredericks (NAM) 9.95 AR
6th. Raymond Stewart (JAM) 9.96 PB
7th. Robson Caetano da Silva (BRA) 10.12
8th. Bruny Surin (CAN) 10.14

Carl Lewis also set 2 world records in the 4 x 100 metres final and the long jump final. However despite registering a world record jump of 8.91 metres erasing Bob Beamon's 23 year old record of 8.90 metres, Lewis still only manage second place.

The champion was USA's Mike Powell who jumped 8.95 metres, a distance never been broken till this day, 29th August 2011, after almost 20 years.

That is the leap into the new century.
