Coming into the championships, Ivory Williams had run a world-leading time of 6.49 seconds to win the US indoor championships, positioning him as a possible gold medallist. However, he tested positive for marijuana and he received a three-month ban, while his world-leading performance was annulled. This made Dwain Chambers the competitor with the best pre-championships form, closely followed by Mike Rodgers, Nesta Carter and Daniel Bailey.Chambers led the field on the first day heats, followed by Trell Kimmons and the home athlete Samuel Francis (athlete). Little-known Ryan Moseley upset the favourites in the sixth heat in which Lerone Clarke of Jamaica was eliminated. Clarke was the only surprise non-qualifier of the round, although Rolf Fongué was the first athlete to fall foul of the no false start rule at a global championships – a rule introduced at the start of the 2010 season.

On the second day of competition, Chambers (6.51) and Kimmons (6.55) were again the fastest qualifiers in the semi-finals, with Mike Rodgers and Daniel Bailey improving as the rounds progressed. Nesta Carter and Ronald Pognon were the other semifinal leaders, while Francis progressed as a fastest-loser. Ibrahim Kabia and Rodney Green both ran national record times of 6.65 as did 2008 Olympic fourth placer Churandy Martina. However, only Kabia won selection for the final eight. Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, one of the fastest of the season, pulled up with an injury.In the last day round of the competition, Rodgers and Bailey made quick starts to lead the final. However, Chambers hit his top speed to pull ahead of his rivals and leant at the line for the victory. The final saw a number of career firsts for athletes: Chambers won the race in 6.48 seconds (a world-leading time) to become the oldest ever winner of the event at 31, which was also his first ever world title after winning silver in 2008. Mike Rodgers was the next athlete home and his silver was his first ever medal on a global stage. Daniel Bailey had become the first ever Antiguan to reach a world indoor final, and he duly improved upon the feat to take the bronze to become the island nation's first ever medallist. Trell Kimmons, who was only a last minute replacement for Ivory Williams, took fourth place.

List of Yu-Gi-Oh! characters

The Yu-Gi-Oh! series features an extensive cast of characters created by Kazuki Takahashi. The series takes place in a fictional city in Japan called Domino City, in which most of the characters that appear in the series originate. Many plot elements are also influenced by Egypt and Egyptian mythology, and as such, Egyptian characters also appear within the story.

The original manga of Yu-Gi-Oh! tells the tale of Yugi Mutou, a timid young boy who loves all sorts of games, but is often bullied around. One day, he solves an ancient artifact known as the Millennium Puzzle, causing his body to play host to a mysterious spirit with the personality of a gambler. From that moment onwards, whenever Yugi or one of his friends is threatened by those with darkness in their hearts, this "Dark Yugi" shows himself and challenges them to dangerous "Shadow Games" which reveal the true nature of someone's heart, the losers of these contests often being subjected to a dark punishment called a "Penalty Game". As the series progresses, Yugi and his friends (Katsuya Jonouchi, Anzu Mazaki, Hiroto Honda, Miho Nosaka (in the 1998 series), and later Ryo Bakura) learn that this other Yugi inside of his puzzle is actually the spirit of a nameless Pharaoh from Egyptian times who had lost his memories. As Yugi and his companions attempt to help the Pharaoh regain his memories, they find themselves going through many trials as they wager their lives facing off against others that wield the mysterious Millennium Items and the dark power of the Shadow Games.
