Jamaican’s Yohan Blake has told Kasapa Sports that he is disappointed for his poor performance in the men’s 100m final in the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Australia.
Yohan Blake who was favorite to win gold in the men’s 100m finals got shocked of his life when he was beaten by South African Simbine Akani.
The Jamaican track star — bestowed with the title of the second-fastest man in history — cut a forlorn, conflicted figure after he dramatically choked in the final of the men’s 100m final at Carrara Stadium on Monday night.
“I am very disappointed that I placed 3rd in the men’s 100m finals, in fact coming into the race my aim was to win gold for Jamaica but it’s rather unfortunate,” Blake added.
The 28-year-old was the red-hot favorite to claim gold in the event -and promised to deliver a show for Australia.
Simbine sprinted away from the field in the final 30m to win gold with a time of 10.03 seconds – 0.14 seconds ahead of countryman Henricho Bruintjies and 0.16 seconds clear of Blake.
