Hi, what are you looking for?


Was it Yohan Blake who moved first?

DAEGU (Sporting Alert) — Usain Bolt did not protest the false-start charged to him by the starter, which ended his hopes of repeating as the World champion over the 100m in Daegu on Sunday.

However, the debut continues to surround the incident, with owner, Attila Spiriev, now joining the list of analysts still breaking down the incident.

Spiriev, has apparently studied a number of angles and versions of videos and he believes Bolt was not the man who moved first.

Spiriev is of the view that the newly crowned world champion Yohan Blake could have been the man who moved first, although he revealed that “it was hardly visible.”

Nevertheless, the result is now history and Bolt will now have to extend his focus on winning the 200m and helping Jamaica to defend its 4x100m relay gold medal.

Blake in the meantime, will be happy at becoming the youngest ever world 100m champion.
