Apparantly, there was a rounding error last week when Justin Gatlin broke the world record in the 100 meters. His official timing came through in 9.766, which means that his time should have been manually rounded up to 9.77 before being reported. This means that he did not in fact break the record, he only tied it. Justin Gatlin is now officially tied with Asafa Powell for the 100m world record.

Hopefully, one or the other can break the record later this year. A great race would be where they both break the record in the same meet.
