RT's are all over the place.
A guy I know personally who can run sub-7.00 in his sleep runs a laughable 7.33 with a .414 RT?
LERONE CLARKE fails to advance out of the heats and runs 7.05 with an even worse .420 RT?
Same in the multis.
Something is wrong with start area; there were problems is hurdles as well.
Kristi is a nice girl, that was f*cked. Also in the hurdles its a different dynamic. You can't just stop easily mid race.
Kristi Castlin in the 60m hurdles should have kelp going even with the bad start problem that heat was slow enough were she still could have advanced.
In football you are taught that no matter what you think happend, to keep the play going until the ref blows the whisel.
It's supposed to be that when you are "set" and you hear a sound (any sound), you go. It gets tricky with an echo as they have in Istanbul. The echo can sound like the recall pistol. If they DO call a false start and you don't stop, you won't be able to recover in time for the restarted sprint. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Sally Pearson, the 100-meter hurdles world champion, won her heat in 7.85 seconds, but she also thought there was a problem at the start.
"I thought someone had false started. 'Oh crap, that wasn't me, was it?'" Pearson said. "But the girl next to me was starting so I just kept going myself.
"They taught us back there, don't listen for the echo. Go for the first sound you hear," said American sprinter Justin Gatlin, who won his heat in 6.64 seconds. "There is a little bit of inexperience by coming up and saying there is a false start next to me. Your job is to run, not to be an official."
