IAAF denies Japan boy joint 100m junior world record

Jun 16 2013, 4:18am CDT | by

Monaco, June 16 (IANS/CMC) The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) has annulled the joint 100 metres junior world record of 10.01 seconds clocked by Japanese sprinter Yoshihide Kiryu.

Monaco, June 16 (IANS/CMC) The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) has annulled the joint 100 metres junior world record of 10.01 seconds clocked by Japanese sprinter Yoshihide Kiryu.

The 17-year-old Kiryu lost his joint 100m junior world record after officials ruled the equipment used for measuring wind speed at the Oda Memorial in Hiroshima April 29 was not up to international standards, reports CMC.

He clocked the same time run by Trinidad and Tobago's Darrel Brown and American Jeffery Demps. They were a year older than Kiryu when they recorded their 10.01-second times.

The IAAF has informed the Japan Association of Athletics Federations (JAAF) that the time was not valid, according to Kyodo News.

Kiryu had run with a tail wind measured at 0.9 metres per second, but the measuring equipment was not up to current international standards, which call for an ultrasonic wind gauge, Kyodo said.

The time, which makes him the ninth fastest 100m sprinter of the year, will continue to be listed in the IAAF rankings.

Any thoughts on the Giant Escape R3 2015

Aug 28 2014 8:38am CDT | Source: Bike Forums

So today I collected my new bike. I'm sure it's not an amazing bike in comparison to the pro bikes that some people here certainly have. But I really like it so far. I think it's what you'd call a hybrid bike. I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this bike, has an opinion on it, etc. I'm in Japan, so I'm not certain if this model is specific to Japan or is just gene ...

Evo IV/V/VI - 5th Gen Mirage Sedan Headlamp compatability

Aug 28 2014 6:21am CDT | Source: evolutionm

Sup evom, new here, been lurking a bit, did a search and couldnt really find any good info on what I need. Basically, I'm looking to to import an Evo IV/V/VI from Japan. However, where I live, to get the car registered you need to have DOT approved headlamps. The whole assembly needs to have the marking on it. After a bit of searching it seems as though the word-of-mouth solution is to get your hands on some USDM mirage sedan headlamps and swa ...
