This is a final post on the Bolt false start controversy, since as you'll all know, there was some talk that Yohan Blake in Lane 6 (immediately to Bolt's right) might have "twitched" while in the "set" position, and that perhaps he should have received the false start, that he "pushed" Bolt into the false start.
So yesterday, I posted on this question about whether Blake's twitch might have constituted a false start, and wrote the following:
- If you believe that Bolt was 'triggered' to jump by Blake's movement, then Bolt should NOT have been disqualified, but Blake should have been
- If you believe that Bolt was unaffected by that movement, then BOTH should have been disqualified
- And if you believe that Blake's movement was too small and not "irregular", then Bolt is the only athlete who should have been disqualified
Enjoy the rest day tomorrow!
