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.

Amir Sadollah's Long Road Back to the Octagon Ends at UFC Fight Night 52

Sep 16 2014 6:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A career in the fight business is one that comes with a fair amount of give and take. On one side of the scale, there is money and a notable amount of fame or public recognition that will hopefully yield other opportunities to make more of the prior, but on the opposite side, there are physical tolls where payments are required. Fighting is a gritty trade by nature, but it's hardly the bumps, bruises and abrasions suffered on fight night in the quest for glory that linger. T ...

UFC Wants Everyone Pumped Up for Rin Nakai vs. Miesha Tate

Sep 16 2014 1:51pm CDT | Source: middle easy

Rin Nakai is a legend, alright? Her really weird, creepy Pancrase videos that Gary has been enjoying for years now and the MMA world just discovered when Nakai got signed by the UFC are perhaps some of the most disturbing, yet impossible to turn away from promotional videos in MMA history. This video that UFC made to promote Rin Nakai’s debut against Miesha Tate is not that, it’s just a regular old hype video fo ...

The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 135-pound No. 1 contender was popped and dropped by "Alpha" at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale back in April 2013. While referee Kim Winslow makes no apologies for the stoppage, "Cupcake" told MMA Junkie Radio she wants to set things right. Assuming she doesn't get another ...

I hope you like staying up late in America. UFC is coming live from Japan, and it will be from late night to midmorning. Light up the coffee maker, drink an energy drink or go on a sugar bender. Either that, or wait until you wake up in the morning and catch the replay. If you're a psycho like me and have to watch the fights live, you will be up.
