Media representatives were denied the opportunity to speak to Blake, who is expected to also feature in today's 200m rounds but Bolt, who, like he has been throughout these trials, was left in the blocks, described the eventualities as "one of those things".
"For me to get left in the blocks was really bad, but it's just one of those things," said a disappointed Bolt, who was clocked at 9.86. "In the semi-finals, the lane seven guy moved and it threw me off and I kept seeing him in my peripheral, so that threw me off.
"In the final, I got left and in a quality field like this, it is difficult to get back," Bolt added.

Fraser-Pryce showed that her finish is just as good as her start, leading from start to finish in the female event with a blistering 10.70 - a national record.
Fraser-Pryce was ecstatic that she was able to break the national record in front of her home support.
"I have to thank God and my coach (Stephen Francis); what a phenomenal person he is, he believes in us even when we don't believe in ourselves, and I am excited about breaking the national record here in Jamaica. That is something I am excited about," said Fraser-Pryce."
