Japan's Ito posts Japan record in 100-meter semifinal
Japan's premier sprinter Koji Ito (C) marks a new Japanese
and Asian record of 10.00 seconds in the 100-meter semifinal Dec. 13
at the 13th Asian Games in Bangkok, qualifying for Dec. 14's final.
Ito, who shaved 0.08 second off the national record he shared with
Nobuharu Asahara, was first clocked at 9.99, but his official time
was corrected to 10 seconds flat, denying him the honor of becoming
the first Asian to break the magic 10-second barrier.
