Yohan Blake, 32 years old and competing in the men's 100-meter dash, didn't face the camera for interview after a disappointing performance at a big championship.

On day second of the 2022 World Athletics Championships, which took place at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, on Saturday, Blake was eliminated in his semifinal heat in the men's 100-meter dash.

Blake expressed to the media in the mixed zone that he was "not in the mood."

Blake completed his semifinal race in 4th position with 10.12 seconds.

His 10.12 seconds was the ninth fastest out of a total of 23, which indicates that he narrowly missed out on the eighth and last slot for the medal round.

his greatest moment since 2012, when he defeated Usain Bolt at the Olympic Trials, took second to Bolt at the Olympics and became the second-fastest man in history at age 22.

After clocking in at 10.14 seconds and finishing sixth in a semifinal heat in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which were held in 2021, Blake once again could qualify for the final.
