Bolt criticises starting blocks at world championships

Bolt uncomfortable with world championship starting blocks

LONDON, ENGLAND,UNITED KINGDOM (AUGUST 4, 2017) (REUTERS/AMS) – Usain Bolt took his first, somewhat stuttering, steps towards what he hopes will be a glorious World Championship farewell on Friday (August 4) when he recovered from a poor start to win his heat in the first round of the 100 metres in 10.07 seconds.

The Jamaican is seeking his fourth gold in the event – he has won the 100m at every world championships since 2009 apart from 2011 in Daegu when he was disqualified for a false start.

Bolt was critical of the starting blocks used at the race and said they feel ‘really uncomfortable’.
