Reigning Olympic and world champion Steven Gardiner was forced to withdraw from the event because of an injury while the man who finished behind him in both of those championships races, Anthony Zambrano of Colombia, is also out of the championships here in Eugene.

This means there will be some new faces on the podium this year and the hunt for those spots will officially get going this morning.

World leader and American champion Michael Norman will start his gold medal quest from the second heat where he will take on Jamaica’s Christopher Taylor, Zakhiti Nene of South Africa, and Belgium’s Kevin Borlee. Norman leads the world top list this season with 43.56 seconds.

World record holder Wayde van Niekerk, meanwhile will be the first of the big contenders on the track when he races from heat one against Barbados’ Jonathan Jones who has been in very good form this season. Van Niekerk owns the world record at 43.08 secs and his season-best is 44.58.

London Olympic champion in 2012, Kirani James, who was the bronze medalist in Tokyo last summer, will start from the fifth heat and will take on Jamaica’s Nathon Allen and Bayapo Ndori of Botswana.

Elsewhere, Americans Michael Cherry and Allison Champion will race from heat three and heat four, respectively, while British champion and national record holder Matthew Hudson-Smith will go up against Lidio Andres Feliz from the Dominican Republic and Liemarvin Bonevacia of The Netherlands in the sixth heat.

The top 3 finishers from each heat, plus the next six fastest times across all six heats, will qualify to the semi-final.
