US sprinter Tyson Gay handed the World and Olympic champion Usain Bolt only his second professional 100m defeat as the American stormed to victory at the Diamond League meeting in Stockholm last night, but the victory was somewhat soured after it became clear that Gay had enjoyed the luxury of a 10-metre start.

Gay clocked 9.84 seconds to beat the fit-again 23-year-old Jamaican by 0.13 seconds, and recorded his first ever win over Bolt over 100m, although Gay actually ran only 90m.

In a race missing injured Asafa Powell, Richard Thompson was third in 10.10 seconds. He also ran the reduced distance.

Starting officials said afterwards that the starting blocks were 'of a new design', and they experienced problems when siting them on the track. They also claimed it was "foggy", which prevented them from lining the blocks up correctly.

An elated Gay said:

"It feels good to beat Usain, even if I did run a shorter distance than him. He was never in it, and even though he was close to me at the line, he was never going to catch me. I'm the champ!"
