DAEGU, South Korea (AP) -- Usain Bolt says he's "extremely disappointed" that he false-started at the world championships, losing his 100 meters sprint title but the world's fastest man adds that he now wants to "move on". Bolt released a statement Monday via his agent a day after his disqualification for jumping the gun in the 100 meters final. He said he is refocusing on the 200, his favorite event, and the sprint relays later this week. Bolt said he worked very hard to prepare for the championships in Daegu, South Korea, felt "great" in the earlier rounds and "was ready to run fast in the final." But he added that "there is no point to dwell on the past." He congratulated teammate Yohan Blake for winning in his absence.
