Five weeks after his disqualification from the 100m final at the World Championships in Daegu, Usain Bolt has voiced his opposition to the "zero tolerance" false-start rule.
"They really should go back to one false start and charge it to the field," the Jamaican sprinter said, speaking on a trip to California. "It's easier. Somebody makes one mistake and everybody can relax."
The world's fastest man has clearly had a change of heart. After bouncing back from his 100m false start with a victory in the 200m final in Daegu, he had said: "I was disappointed to be thrown out but it was my own fault, so I can't complain. I knew the rule."Reuse content
