Ferdinand Omanyala’s victory in men’s 100 meters at the Botswana Golden Grand Prix on Saturday in Gaborone has elicited confusion.

Apparently, information coming from Gaborone indicated that Omanyala’s world-lead victory of 9.78 seconds had been quashed after a lane infringement.
It was also not clear whether Omanyala’s victory was a world lead or not after the victory was posted when the winds were cruising at +2.3 meters while the legal wind speed should be +2.0 in 100m and 200m.

In World Athletics competition rules, sprint and jump performances for which the measured wind speed exceeds +2.0 m/s are deemed illegal and cannot be ratified for record purposes.

World Athletics had indicated that Omanyala had stormed to a huge 100m world lead at the Botswana Golden Grand Prix on its official Facebook page.

“On another level. Ferdinand Omanyala stormed to a huge 100m world lead of 7.78 at the FNB Botswana Golden Grand Prix,” said World Athletics.

However, World Athletics would later alter the Facebook post to read: “On another level. Ferdinand Omanyala storms to a windy 9.78 100m at the FNB Botswana Golden Grand Prix.”

Omanyala stepped on the lane on his right while trying to glance at home athlete Letsile Tebogo, who finished second in 9.91.

Omanyala, who is also a Commonwealth Games champion, took off the blocks swiftly, leading all the way to win, missing his own Africa and national record by 0.01 seconds.

Technical Rule 17.3.1 (163.3(a)) on lane infringement reads:
"This rule applies to athletes running on the bend in a laned race. If an athlete steps on the lane line on their left or runs into the lane on their inside they will be disqualified for shortening the distance of the race. If an athlete runs into the inside lane or touches the lane line in the straight, no report will be made unless they obstruct another athlete as they have not affected the distance to be covered in the race.

“Running into the lane on an athlete’s right (outer lane) should not be penalized unless there is interference with the athlete running in that lane.”

Omanyala’s absence from the podium where winners were being awarded raised eyebrows with an Athletics Kenya official who was attending the World Athletics

Continental Gold Tour event, saying in telephone conservation that Omanyala might have been disqualified for a lane infringement.

Botswana Golden Grand Prix Media Officer Calistus Kolantsho said that the lane infringement was not picked up by the timers or reported to the timers.
“So at the moment, the win stands unless something develops at a later stage,” said Kolantsho.
“Omanyala stepped on the line but didn’t infringe on anyone so there is no disqualification here,” said Omanyala’s coach Duncan Ayiemba, adding that at the time of the 100m race prize presentation, Omanyala was warming up for the 4x100m race where he anchored Kenya to victory in 38.26 seconds.
“I have just talked to Omanyala and everything is ok,” explained Ayiemba, who is in Nairobi.

In a rejoinder, Omanyala said that he had not been disqualified.

Lane infringement ni kama kumiss pucci ukaingia mkia

He will break all the world records in the near future

Something like that. Though you are too explicit

Amen mūthuuri wa Ķīama.

He will break your wife’s rear orifice Ukiendelea na karobo Mr.
Hapo sawa

Kwa nini unapenda kuingilia shifu?

Because he’s a bitter tribalistic nincompoop with an IQ of a shelf. Next question?

I think he is a good man. I also heard he is a billionaire

Omanyala naona siku moja akiwa busted hizi records zote ni matatap amekuwa akitumia

Taptap zinakufanya zombie we mzee.

A mbirrionaire…

Huwa nashuku pia anatumia kakitu kusisimua misuli

Alahhh!!! Leo usemi paruyah. Anyway World records is far fetched, he is still only no7 in the world. Wache kwanza afike no1. Hapo juu wasee ni noma.

Malisaa yeye

Hii Kijiji lakini

Americans na Jamaicans pia wako guilty.

Wale watu hawako careful ndio hukamatwa

This is true with sprinters. Lakini long distance Sioni anything that can help you . Unless ni ile time umeanza kuzeeka and usually you can only buy a little more time and that’s it. Omanyala is very good ; but he’s still yet to dominate the big stages. So far he runs really really fast in smaller races. Whether time will allow him the luxury to win them later that’s unknown to me. Sports are very mercurial

You obsessed with mkia

Then why are so many distance runners doping with EPO ?
Every month a new Kenyan is busted for EPO

I think , shortcut. The illusion of shortcut. Also note, as I said earlier… many of those are aging athletes . Time humbles you especially when you still think you’re too dog. The rest are unknown ones looking for shortcut. But that won’t really make u better. In my time I beat many who were thought to be on it. Endurance in real sense is strength first… is your body strong to withstand the speed and pressure? Is your mind? Instead of epo just add beets and you’ll be just fine.
