Athletics South Africa (ASA) on Monday confirmed that the time (9.95 seconds) recorded by Lee-Roy Newton in the 100m at the KwaZulu-Natal Athletics Championships last weekend will not be ratified as a new South African record.
The starter's electronic report reflects that Newton's reaction time was -0.046 seconds off the blocks, which indicates a false start.
Secondly, the photo finish camera was pointing approximately one metre before the finish line. This is evident in the photo finish pictures.
And finally, Newton left the stadium without being tested for anti-doping control.
He was only tested at his home at about four thirty in the afternoon, which is clearly a violation of anti-doping rules. Newton should have been accompanied by an anti-doping control official, which he was not, until he was tested. - Sapa
