Bailey, who defeated Michael Frater to win the Jamaican title earlier this season, clocked a swift 10.12seconds to qualify fastest from the second round.

“I am performing very good right now,” he told BBC Sports after his race.

“Tomorrow I am just going to go out there, listen to what my coach say and execute the race and hopefully I will make the finals.”

Fellow Jamaican Lerone Clarke also looked very impressive when he produced a solid 10.19secs to take his race.

“I was just looking to do enough to qualify and not to run too fast as yet.

“Tomorrow I am just going to go to semis and try to make the finals and then after that its all gold.”

Mark Lewis-Francis of Great Britain ran 10.15secs to win his heat.

    I hope Oshane’s coach reminds him that it is not important to have the fastest times in the qualifying rounds. Good luck to both him and Clarke. I wonder how the other Jamaican did.

    Just read where Oshane made it to the finals of the 100m, but has pulled up during the semis.

    Hope it’s nothing major and he’ll figure prominently into the finals.

    Congrats to Lerone Clarke on winning the 100m. Well done.
