World record helps Bolt find redemption

For the second Sunday in succession, Usain Bolt was a figure of isolation in Daegu Stadium. Seven days previously, in the immediate aftermath of his false start disqualification from the 100 metres final, he went pacing off into a quiet alcove at trackside, fuming at his own impetuosity, while the rest of the field chased down the track after the title he had won in world-record time in Berlin in 2009. Had Bolt not jumped the gun, in all probability his rivals would have been running for a silver lining.

The strains of "God Save the Queen" rang round Daegu Stadium yesterday. Sadly, it was not played in recognition of a second British gold at the World Championships; it was for the delayed presentation of the reward Dai Greene earned in the 400 metres hurdles on Thursday.

Greene looks good as he does Bolt impression

Just as another golden hope turned into a silver lining for the Great Britain team in Daegu yesterday, the glint of a possible Midas touch came into view. It remains to be seen whether Dai Greene will succeed where Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis have failed and win gold at the World Championships in South Korea. In emerging from his 400m hurdles semi-final as a comfortable winner yesterday, though, the Swansea Harrier showed the assurance of a contender who is going into tomorrow's final in 24-carat condition.

Bolt: no problem with one-strike-and-out rule

They were talking about the twitch in Daegu yesterday but there was no sign of a knee-jerk reaction. The morning after Usain Bolt's disqualification from the World Championship 100m final, close scrutiny of the replay showed a momentary twitch in the "set" position by Yohan Blake immediately before Bolt blatantly false started.

Leading article: Lightning blow

As their collective gasp of astonishment indicated, it was certainly a bolt from the blue as far as thousands of spectators at the World Athletics Championship in Korea were concerned. Usain Bolt has been called the lightning bolt in homage to his speed as a sprinter. But yesterday the triple Olympic champion's lightning struck too early, after his false start off the blocks in Daegu resulted in his dramatic disqualification from the men's 100m final.

Bolt's sensational banishment sparks row over false-start rules

When Alan bell, the Geordie chief starter, called for the eight athletes in the World Championship men's 100m final to get to their marks in the Daegu Stadium yesterday, Usain Bolt quit his clowning to the television cameras, sprang up on his toes and yelled: "Let's go." As the world's fastest man levered his long legs into his starting blocks, the 50,000 crowd and the multi-million global television audience got ready for the challenge of the "Lightning Bolt" versus the trackside clock.
