JAMAICA'S Dexter Lee was today disqualified after a false start in the 200m first round heats at the 13th IAAF World Junior Championships in Canada.

Lee created track and field history at the Stadium du Moncton yesterday as he sped to the island's first gold to defend the title he won two years ago in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Lee, who ran out of lane seven after posting the seventh fastest time in the semi-finals, stopped the clock at 10.21 seconds, well below his personal and season best 10.16, beating American Charles Silmon, who ran a personal best 10.23, while France's Jimmy Vicaut, the joint world leader, was third in 10.28.
