Two hundredths faster than the continental record shared by the Portuguese Francis Obikwelu and the French Jimmy Vicault. A record that was not finally approved after irregularities were found in the technical equipment used.

Wilson, of Jamaican origin, was suspended after testing positive last April for trenboloneBut he appealed the suspension, claiming that he had unknowingly ingested the substance after eating contaminated meat in the United States. His ban was lifted by the disciplinary chamber of Swiss Olympic, the Swiss sports coordinating organization and the National Olympic Committee, in early July.

He runs out of the Tokyo Olympics, where he was originally going to compete in the 200 meters. “The panel concluded that the provisional suspension imposed on the athlete on April 28, 2021 should not have been lifted by the Swiss Olympic Disciplinary Chamber,” the CAS said in a statement.
