It says something about after a nerve-racking amount of false starts he finally won. So there was no disqualification for false starts back then?

guess not, but the thing is he either was ultra quick on his reaction time or he false started and jumped the gun. His times would not be legal now, since they have a minimum reaction of .25 or something like that. he was doing it quicker than what is thought to be human reaction

casey combest is possibly the modern time theif of starts, used to do 10 starts before and after bed. I read he practiced with his blocks that he put in the ground and dug a trench for him to sprint. Days before a meet he would put his sprinting suit on and listen to a recording of the starting gun.

I also remember seeing usain's reaction times. He was good when his starting times where normal..but now his starting time is really good and his times are great
