Gatlin breaks world 100m record

World and Olympic champion Justin Gatlin became the new 100m world record holder at the IAAF Super Tour meeting in Doha on Friday.

The 24-year-old American clocked 9.76 seconds to break Asafa Powell's mark by one-hundredth of a second.

"I am very happy to have broken the world record," said Gatlin, whose main aim of 2006 was to smash Powell's mark. "I knew it was coming.

This is my third time in Doha and it has proved to be third time lucky."


100m RECORD SINCE 1990
9.76: J Gatlin (US), 12/05/06
9.77: A Powell (Jam), 14/06/05
9.78: T Montgomery (US), 14/09/02
9.79: M Greene (US), 16/06/99
9.84: D Bailey (Can), 27/07/96
9.85: L Burrell (US), 06/07/94
9.86: C Lewis (US), 25/08/91
9.90: L Burell (US), 14/06/91

Gatlin had already been in red hot form this season, clocking 9.95 in his first outing of the season in Osaka and 9.85 in the Doha semi-finals.
Jamaican Powell became the first sprinter in three years to lower the 100m mark even further in Athens last year.

Gatlin and Powell will renew their rivalry when they go head-to-head for the first time this season at the Gateshead Grand Prix on 11 June.

The pair last met on the track at the London Grand Prix last July but Gatlin cruised to victory as Powell pulled up with a groin injury which also kept him out of the world championships.


The pair did meet in the Olympic final in Athens but Gatlin came out on top as Powell trailed home in fifth place.

Funny thing about FloJo ... when she broke the world record famous triple jumper Banks was taking his jump and the wind speed was over 5 m/s (2 m/s is allowed for records) and yet the 100 m race was 'regular'

Of course they used drugs in the 80's - where do you live?

All of female records are from the 80's and no one comes close to them nowadays!

For example: WR over 400m is 47.60 sec ... nowadays you are one of the best if you run under 50 secinds!!!

Merlene got that ruling overturned because it had turned out her sample was tampered with. I don't think anyone who was guilty would go to the extreme lengths Ottey went to to get the test ruling overturned. Jones on the other hand refused to have a urine sample taken when she was 16 and had OJ Simpsons lawyer represent her in court...........and where exactly did her form go after the Balco scandal. From invincible to not even being able to make the US Olympic team in either the 100 or the 200...... HIGHLY Suspect!

I agree that the US trial are very tough but what I'm saying is Jones would not only dominate them but world track as well and suddenly she can't even finish top 3 in events she was Olympic Champion in....I never trusted her and with people including CJ Hunter, her ex husband giving incredibly detailed accounts on how she would cheat and the head of Balco pointing the finger as well as her 'doping' calender it is blatently obvious that she was a drug cheat - Tim Montgomery her other husband getting a life time ban and Kelli White pointed the finger at her too. I believe Laren Williams is clean and Torrence and Devers were clean but there are a whole host of US sprinters that were systematic dopers and got away with it - Carl Lewis included.

Yes, I know the ruling was overturned. But the fact still remains that Marion is yet to fail a test.

And although I think it's *likely* Marion cheated she did have a baby so she has a justifiable excuse for her poor form the past couple of years. So to me, her poor form isn't that suspicious.

I'm not defending them, but the U.S is clearly the best at track and field, and there is no evidence to support we're not! I'm very disappointed in the negative feedback in this thread, and lets be honest, it's all because he is an American. Which is a shame, and the U.S certainly has had it's arrogant track stars in the past. Our current core of Justin, Jerermy, Lauryn, Allison, Lisa are the best behaved and modest athletes we've had in some time. So please judge the athletes on their performances and not by past athletes. Thats all i'm saying, and yall MF's got be all head and i'm not even that patriotic!

So I just wait for the real meetings and then we will see. At leasts it makes the season a lot more intresting.

How long will it take for people like you to take off the blinkers and realise that Marion is a drug cheat. Her two husbands have been banned for life, training partners serving bans, she was paying substancial cheques to Victor Conte, head of Balco lab for "vitamins" - he just happened to develop the THG designer steroid at the time. CJ Hunter, her first husband, has said that she cheated regularly and went into great detail on how she did it. There is no way in hell that she is a clean athlete - the facts are there and she will go down eventually!

Well, I have experience with this kind of things and it's so hard to say. Cause you have a video analysis and you have to say when did his breast pass the line. And is that 9.764 or is it only his head at that point etc.. So I can understand they made a misstake of 2/1000s. But yes they had to do it carefully because it was a world record.


BTW. Churandy Martina (a guy for the Netherlands Antilles) ran 9.76 last week. But he had a wind of +6.0m/s...

Marion and Tim Montgomery are not married, and Montgomery was only banned for two years, not for life. Besides, I never said that Marion was guilty or innocent of anything; I merely said that her maternity leave was the main reason why she performed poorly in 2004. Drugs or no drugs, there's no way she could have gotten into medal-winning condition after taking a year off to have a baby. Lastly, if Marion is taking drugs, why does she keep passing drug tests? Is she the only athlete in track and field who has access to the new BALCO?

mauresmofan
May 18th, 2006, 08:54 PM
if Marion is taking drugs, why does she keep passing drug tests? Is she the only athlete in track and field who has access to the new BALCO?

She was passing drug tests when she was completely untouchable because she was on THG which at the time was undetectable by the drug tests performed. She would have been caught post Balco scandal had she been running like Kelli White was but instead she was having her baby so wasn't competing. She then returned to track the next season and didn't fail any tests because she wasn't on THG - note the incredible decrease in her performances at this stage and no longer being anything like a world beater. The biggest factor for me that shows she is a drug cheat was when, at the age of 16, she refused to be drug tested and went and hired OJ Simpsons Lawyer to represent her in court. Why would someone go to such extreme measures if they have nothing to hide????? Athletics for a lot of athletes boils down to whether the chemists can stay ahead of the drug tests! Marion Jones isn't the only one who never failed a drug test but remains highly suspect - Zhanna Block, Ekatherina Thanou and the new Olympic Champion who never in her life ran below 11.4 secs and can suddenly run under 11secs in all 4 rounds of the Olympics - Nesterenko - Don't even get me started on her!

My views on Marion Jones are pretty well known around here so I'm not going to get into that. However, this is the reason why I don't like track(athletics) the sport is so dirty that I bet the percentage of athletes that don't take illegal performance enhancers is less than the percentage that do. I know Marion was pregnant and I still hold out hope but the fact that her ex husband, her baby's dad, and her trainers were all linked to illegal performance enhancers makes me wonder. IMO Powell, Campbell, etc are probably dirty too.
