Yes, bad wind readings can happen to good people

Wow. Tyson Gay just blasted a 9.68. The crowd roared, thinking it had just witnessed a new world record. Then all eyes turned to the wind gauge operator. A few seconds later, the digital sign at the gauge flashed "+4.1", more than double the allowable wind for a record. So the crowd had to settle for talking about the fastest 100m run under any conditions.

No matter what the wind speed, a thrilling race.
