I'm sure the authorities would love to offer '2nd chances', but sadly, more lenient laws on false starting have been abused by some athletes and used as a tool to unsettle fellow competitors.

They had a particular problem with this in swimming, and there were a few 'casualties' to begin with, but in the end, people just learnt to wait for the starter gun like you're supposed to.

It's a tough one.

Ah but I wonder if he regrets supporting it in quite such an arrogant manner when it was introduced...

"For me, I have no problem, I never false-started yet," the Jamaican said. "It will be better for the sport. It will be a problem for some people but not for me."

there was only ever going to be one thing happen after he said that..

With the eyes of the world on London 2012, what's the bet they change the rules for next year.

at least Bolt actually false started.

Drugcheat Chambers got false started for twitching - and it was the guy next to him that actually started.

Part of the team that just broke the 4x100m world record. GBR trip up the Americans and drop the baton.

Great run from mo Farah in the 5000m

Interesting isn't it? There's a thread on Usain Bolt but not one on The world Athletic Championships. Or was it there for the length of time it took UB to false start?

Still I have enjoyed both the Athletics and the showmanship and athletic prowess of UB. Looking forward to next summer already.

Mo Farah's run was brilliant.

Unlike Channel's 4 coverage; they're not covering the Olympics are they? They couldn't run the proverbial piss-up in a brewery

Yeah - I'm a big fan of athletics and should have started a thread. Really hope the weather next summer is good so we can see some fast times.

The original 'false start' rule was that each participant got a warning for their first fals start and then were disqualified on the second. This, in theory, could lead to 8 false starts and no-one disqualified and the race not yet run. This was deemed to potentially take too long, probably for television purposes so was changed.
The next rule was that after the first flase start, the whole field was on a warning and if there was a second false start, that person was disqualified even if they hadn't caused to first false start. This was deemed to be open to abuse and gamesmanship, in that a runner could deliberately false start and then potentially get a fast-starting rival disqualified.
The latest rule is basically 'one strike and you are out' and people are falling foul of it, a bit like they used to when the football back-pass rule was introduced. It may be harch in some circumstances, but everyone is playing by the same rules and they'll get used to it over time.

With regard to Usain Bolt, he is not renound and a fast starter anyway, and he's so quick anyway that he can get away with it. But there are other athaletes that do rely on a fast start and they are the one's who could be in a bit more difficulty now.

Like Linford used to say "You've got to go on the B of Bang!", now you might have to wait for the A.

I got all this from a radio interview I heard on 5 Live on Saturday.

A cracking summary Sluggo, but it was great to see Bolt win the 200m & relay, pure theatre, I can't see them ruining the Blue Riband event of the Olympics next year though on a lousy one false start rule, just in case!

Wonder if the new rules are affecting times...?

By that I mean if there were athletes who could gamble on the start knowing that there was a second chance if they false started, it could have been that they got faster times than they would now be able to get under the new rules. As now they have to wait that split second later to ensure there's no danger of a false start.
