Sprint Mark Submitted

NEW YORK () -- Donovan Bailey's record performance in the 50 meters earlier this month will be submitted to the International Amateur Athletic Federation for ratification, The New York Times reported Tuesday.


The Canadian's time of 5.56 seconds on Feb. 9 in the Reno Air Games had been questioned by Bob Hersh, the chairman of U.S. Track and Field's Men's Records Subcommittee, because of a possible false start.


Hersh said Monday a review of a television slow-motion replay showed Bailey was not moving before the gun sounded.


Bailey broke the mark of 5.61 set by Manfred Kokot of East Germany in 1973 and matched by American James Sanford in 1981.
