Chambers sizzled to 6.51secs in 60m semis; Lolo just made it

Great Britain’s Dwain Chambers again looked impressive when winning his semi-final heat of the men’s 60m dash at the World Indoor Championships.

Chambers, one of the favourites to win the event, clocked a sizzling 6.51seconds to qualify easily for the final race later this evening. Jamaica’s Nesta Carter, a member of the Jamaican 4x100m Olympic relay gold medal winning world record breaking team finished second in 6.64secs.

Also looking just as impressive were the Americans, Trell Kimmons, winner of heat two in 6.55seconds and Mike Rogers, who took the last semis in 6.56. Also making it through is Daniel Bailey of Antigua who clocked 6.64.

Elsewhere, American defending champion Lolo Jones just made the final of the women’s 60m hurdles after finishing fourth in her semis in 8.04secs. Jones, a strong gold medal contender had a great start but ran into trouble midway in the race and just got up to take the last qualifying spot.

There were no problems for Canadians semi-finals winners Priscilla Lopes-Schliep (7.91) and Perdita Felicien (7.94), while Jamaican veterans Vonette Dixon (7.94) and Lacena Golding-Clarke (8.01).
