Olympic 100m champion Lamont Marcell Jacobs DSQ for false start:p. It happens to the best of them. 

according to the Italian press, it wasn't a false start at all...and even the audience present at the hall did blow a lot of whistles against the judges...:mumble:

 

by the way, in the same meet in Belgrade, Nick Ponzio won the men's Shot Put with the new Italian record of 21.61m and Zeynab Dosso won the women's 60m in 7.21 secs...

 

so, some good results for Italy, too...:p

 

but the star of the night was of course :SWE Armand "Mondo" Duplantis, who won the men's Pole Vault with the new Indoor World Record of 6.19m...:yikes: :bowdown:

Usually in these commercial meets the judges find an equipment fault when the superstar’s lane number comes up.

17 years old Nick Griggs just ran a 3:56 mile indoors :yikes:

 

It's a Euro U20 record. He also won European U20 gold last year over 3000m at the age of 16. Crazy to think we could finally have another potential track star from Ireland after so many years.
