  McKoy, the home town favourite, had already been called up for one false start-- and it seemed certain that he would be disqualified after appearing to have another flyer second time around.   But the race was not stopped, and both Jackson and American Olympic silver medallist Tony Dees found themselves trailing McKoy badly by the first barrier.   Both made great inroads into the Canadian's lead and all three hit the line almost together, but McKoy dipped fractionally ahead.   He was timed at a Canadian record 7.41secs, the fastest time in the world this year, with Jackson adjudged to have gained the silver, though both he and Dees were clocked at 7.43secs.     Though Jackson was the first to congratulate Olympic champion McKoy, the disappointment was written  all over his face.     Oystermen come close to victory LOWLY Brightlingsea United came agonisingly close to recording their first Jewson League Premier Division win of the season against top of the table Wisbech.   The Oystermen led the match 2--1 with just three minutes remaining when Mel Mattless struck the equaliser.   Sean Duffett had given Brightlingsea a 13th minute lead from a corner and Jackie Gallagher did not head Wisbech level until the 80th minute.   Five minutes later David Gray restored Brightlingsea's lead, but then came the Mattless goal.
