Gatlin’s time corrected to 9.77 – EQUALS 100m World Record

17 May 2006

The IAAF has just been informed by Tissot Timing of an error in the reading of the result recorded by Justin Gatlin (USA) in the 100m at the IAAF Super Grand Prix Meeting in Doha, Qatar on Friday 12 May 2006.

Based on his time recorded after winning the race, Gatlin ran 9.766 seconds for 100m, which was then announced as 9.76 - a new World Record for this distance.

However, according to IAAF rules, this time should have been manually rounded up to 9.77.

Therefore, Gatlin’s time will now be adjusted to 9.77, and pending ratification, will equal the previous 100m World Record of Asafa Powell (JAM) set in 2005.
