The sprinter found his task much easier when his main rival Chijindu Ujah was disqualified from the race for a false start. The officials have been accused of holding the athletes in position for too long during the competition, and Ujah said afterwards: “I’ve never false-started in my life so for it to happen here is just gutting. The guy next to me twitched. I also felt they were holding us for so long.”
In reaction to the victory Kilty said: “A few people called me a one-hit wonder and counted me out again. I don’t think they should do that again because I’ve come out here and proved I’m a fearless competitor. I come alive on the battlefield.”
The 25-year-old has found it difficult to transfer his indoor form to outdoors, but this latest win may give him the boost he needs to do so.
