Usain Bolt: "No point to dwell on the past"
Usain Bolt's Puma Ad in New York.  

DAEGU, South Korea- World 100m and 200m record holder and Olympic champion Usain Bolt, issued a statement a short while ago, expressing disappointment with his false start in the 100m final on Sunday and apologised to his fans across the world.

Bolt, who also took time out to congratulate his friend and training partner Yohan Blake, who went on to win the gold medal in 9.92 seconds and said that he will now turn his attention to the 200m and the relays, which will be contested later this week.

“I am extremely disappointed not to have had the chance to defend my title due to the false start,” said Bolt. “I worked very hard to get ready for this Championships and things were looking good.”

“However I have to move on now as there is no point to dwell on the past,” he added.

“I would like to congratulate my team mate Yohan Blake and the other athletes who won the medals,” Bolt stated.

Blake, 21, became the youngest every 100m world champion, keeping his cool to power home ahead of Walter Dix, 10.08, and Kim Collins, 10.09.

Bolt’s ejection, has caused the IAAF to look into the current false start rules, following outcry from a number of athletes, fans and track and field pundits.
