Disqualified in Garcia Clash
became one of the first high profile names to be disqualified
under the new false start ruling at Karlsruhe Germany.
Initially Jackson had been allowed to run after both
former World Universiade Champion Jonathan N'Senga and
himself were called up for beating the gun. However
having finished second behind Anier Garcier 7.49 to
the Cuban's 4.47, Jackson was subsequently disqualified
after the Belgian's first break was finally ruled to
be a false rather than faulty start.
However a philosophical Jackson was still happy with
his evening's work running under 7.50 for the first
time in 2003 - though obviously the time not stand in
the years rankings.
