Josephus Lyles who was second to Williams in the first heat, qualified for the final with the second-quickest time of 10.06 secs, while Kyree King (10.08), the winner of the second heat, and Jelani Walker of Jamaica (10.15) who was third in heat one, also among the top sprinters advancing to the final of the men’s 100m.
