Timed this several times on hand watch. Had Vlad at 21.0 and Schoeman at 21.2.

Yugos, it’s a great thing timing systems were invented. We know how inaccurate hand times are +- 2/10th’s and time registers depending on how hard you touch the pad…

Thanks for posting this video! It’s a shame we can’t rely on timing systems to be accurate. Even with the times being adjusted to give Morozov the win the times are still not right! Pull out a stop watch and time for yourself…Schoeman was clearly more than 0.01 behind.
