Three Jamaican athletes booked their places in the semifinals of the men’s 100m at the London World Championships today.

Yohan Blake clocked  10.13 to finish third in heat 2. Japan’s rising star athlete Abdul Hakim Sani Brown finished first in 10.05.


In the heat that followed, Julian Forte produced the first sub-10 clocking of the Championships with a personal best of 9.99 to win that heat.

Forte crossed the line ahead of Ben Youssef Meïté of the Ivory Coast, (10.02) and Britain’s Reece Prescod who ran a personal best, 10.03.


And the man who ensured the stadium was filled to capacity – Usain Bolt won the final heat of the day clocking 10.07.

Bolt comfortably won his heat despite a sluggish start. Britain’s James Dasaolu was second in 10.013. 


Jamaica’s Senoj-Jay Givans failed to advance from heat 1 after finishing seventh with a time of 10.30. The American athlete Christian Coleman took that race comfortably with a time of 10.1.
