Usain Bolt was disqualified and missed out on defending his 100-meter title after committing a false start at the world track and field championships on Sunday, August 28, 2011 in Daegu, South Korea, several sports news sites reported that day.

As seen on the Youtube video below, Bolt committed a false start and was disqualified immediately. He was disqualified because of a new false start rule enacted last year which give zero-tolerance to the act.

Bolt was said to be in no mood to talk after the incident. “Looking for tears? Not going to happen,” Bolt reportedly told a small group of reporters following him around.

“I didn’t really think they were going to kick him out. How can you kick Usain out of the race?” Walter Dix who won silver at the race at 10.08 was quoted as saying.
