    Is that you Justin Gatlin? Congratulations. You were faster than Usain Bolt.

    I got 0.189 which I was quite happy with . Took me an age to find the volume button though

    ​Hahahha, chinny reckon! Haven't heard that since I was a kid! Are you my brother?

    yeah I got 0.008 seconds but that's faster than humanly possible

    "While you did beat Bolt, you false-started. Your reaction time is considered by officials to be too fast to be humanly possible. You are disqualified"

    Would that happen at the Olympics though? If someone started 0.01 seconds after the gun, could they still get disqualified?

    I can't even stand up in 9.8 seconds.

    Their feet are on pressure plates, so if they were that quick the pressure would have shifted prior to the gun, so yes DQ.
