94-year-old Emiel Pauwels of Belgium came for behind to defeat Finland's 95-year-old Ilmari Koppinen at the tape. What may look like more of a preventive dash to the men's room than an athletic...

When Yohan Blake sprinted to the most recent major 100-meter title, at last year's world championships, Usain Bolt was banished from the starting blocks because of a false start.
