Usain Bolt disqualified from the 100m finals at World Championship 2011

Olympic medalist Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has been disqualified from the final of the men’s 100m at the World Athletics Championships in Daegu after a false start.

Bolt still has the 200m and 4x100m to come.

Previously, athletes had been allowed one false start before being disqualified for a second, but new rules introduced by governing body the IAAF for the start of the 2010 season disqualifies a runner even at the first false start. Following Bolt’s exit, countryman Yohan Blake took event’s gold.
