Won't mind seeing someone else win but for me this new false start rule is has been shown to be a massive misstep and is really killing my interest in watching sprinting.

What a stupid rule though, 1 false start & you're out?

Who came up with that rule, robbed the public of a spectacle, nothing wrong with the old rule, should have been given a second chance..

the false start rule is the same for everyone - and Bolt really didn't need to do that because he is so much quicker than everyone one else.

Its not "unfair" in itself but the vast majority of the fans want to see a sport where the fastest man over a given distance wins rather than one in which avoiding a false start in any of the rounds is a massive factor.

If it was introduced to appeal to TV audiences who don't like holdups then we've just seen it score a massive own goal.

If I was working for the 2012 team I'd be putting some serious presure on the IAF to get it dropped by next summer.

It is but tradisionally it was a much smaller part of the event, most people would I'd guess say they were happy with its old importance. The event is hyped as the "fastest man in the world" afterall not, "the man best able to avoid a false start". I don't think its even questionable that the final we saw was a terrible specitcal compaired to most 100mm's in the past.

The IAF took a gamble that the harsher penalty would cut out false starts but I think events so far have shown they were wrong. This is afterall the first really high pressure event we've had under the new rules so were only now just seeing what a negative impact the change has on the spectical of the event.

so Usain Bolt is probably the best 100M runner in the world, but basically wasn't allowed to prove it

total farce imo

Indeed, how anyone could take pleasure at laughing at someone disqualified in this fashion is beyond me. Saw Christine Ohuruogu disqualified in the 400metres - heart breaking - athletes prepare for months but are disqualified for a false start.

Lay odds the rule was changed to speed up events for the television companies.

Hollow victory for the winner

he must feel short changed, he didn't beat the best available. Everyone's talking about Bolt instead

crazy situation for such a high profile sport

Agreed. I reckon it will now be changed back due to today's events, though. But quite how Christine O managed a false start over 400m defies belief.

Several of them - sadly, probably. All of them - no.
