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.

Neymar: Just Another Four Goals vs. Japan

Oct 14 2014 1:34pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Neymar is a very good soccer player. That is a fairly bold and revolutionary statement, so you may want to re-read that sentence to let it sink in. The Brazilian star seemingly finds an extra gear when he puts on the National Team jersey as he did Tuesday in a friendly vs. Japan in Singapore. Yes, this is about as low-stakes as international soccer gets but Neymar did score all four goals in a 4-0 victory. Neym ...
