US track star, along with the British sprinter Zharnel Hughes, was given a red card for the false start. As a result, both of them were disqualified from the race. Not just for the athletes but even for fans, it was the biggest disappointment of the season. It was something no one would have anticipated. After the race, Bromell tweeted, “Send my apologies to everyone who had to watch that rookie mistake.” 

 

Trayvon Bromell, who was the world’s fastest man last year at 9.76 seconds, was the top favorite at the event. However, after today’s setback, he would like to forget this event as soon as possible. Though the American sprinter still remains tied for third in the world this year at 9.92 seconds, trailing world leader Ferdinand Omanyala of Kenya (9.85).
