The 2015 world bronze medallist, Trayvon Bromell was disqualified for a false start in his Diamond League season debut at the Müller Diamond League held on Saturday (21), at the newly renovated Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.
The expected showdown between him and the Olympic 200m champion Andre De Grasse failed to materialize after his false start.
“Send my apologies to everyone who had to watch that rookie mistake,” Bromell tweeted.
Canada’s Aaron Brown took the honors in his absence clocking 10.13 seconds, just ahead of 2012 Olympic silver medalist Yohan Blake of Jamaica who came in second in 10.18 seconds with Jerome Blake from Canada closing the podium three finishes in 10’20 seconds.
De Grasse came home in disappointing fourth in 10.24.
