EUGENE, Oregon, (July 15) – The men’s 100 meters results from the heats on Day 1 at the World Athletics Championships 2022 on Friday as USA’s Fred Kerley qualified with the fastest time of 9.79 seconds at Hayward Field.

Olympic champion Lamont Jacobs looked rusty when finishing second to Jamaica’s Oblique Seville who looked relaxed when posting 9.93 to win the heat with Italian running a season’s best of 10.04 for second place in the heat.

All four Americans progressed to the semi-finals with Marvin Bracy winning heat one with 10.05 secs, Trayvon Bromell clocked the second-fastest time on the day at 9.89 and looked just as comfortable as Kerley, while defending champion Christian Coleman ran 10.08 to take his heat as well.

Botswana’s Letsile Tebogo posted a world under-20 record of 9.94 when beating 2011 world champion Yohan Blake (10.04) in his heat, while Africa’s fastest man, Ferdinand Omanyala of Kenya finished third in his heat, but qualified for the semis after running 10.10 behind Japan’s Abdul Hakim Sani Brown who won the heat in 9.98.

Omanyala only arrived in Eugene around three hours before the heats after visa issues so he would have been delight to get through and then go back and get some rest to prepare for the semi-finals on Saturday.
