Yohan Blake World Champion 100m 9.92 seconds, Usain Bolt False Start

>> August 28, 2011

Yohan Blake of Jamaica became the world champion after winning the men's 100m race at the IAAF World championships in athletics in Daegu on August 28, 2011. He clocked a time of 9.92s at the race into a strong headwind of -1.4m/s. The time is three hundredth of a second slower than his personal best, 9.89s. Given a normal condition (zero wind), he would have run 9.82-9.84s.

Olympic bronze medalist Walter Dix (PB 9.88) took the silver medal in 10.08s, while the 2003 world champion Kim Collins (PB 9.98) of St Kitts and Nevis who piped by Walter Dix on the line bagged bronze (10.09s).

Defending world and Olympic champion Usain Bolt (PB 9.58 WR) false started and subsequently disqualified. His recorded's reaction time is -0.104, about 0.20s earlier than the allowed measurement (0.100), 0.099 would be considered a false start.

France's Christophe Lemaitre (PB 9.92) finished 4th in 10.19s, ahead of Daniel Bailey of Antigua who clocked 10.26. Newcomer Jimmy Vicaut of France who has the lowest PB (10.07s) in the final was 6th in 10.27s. Jamaica's Nesta Carter (PB 9.78) injured himself and run through to the line with 10.95s (well, faster than Raymond Stewart in 1988 Olympics, 12.26s - same case!!).
