The Bahamian clocked 50.84 seconds to win the first of the two heats today and heads into the final as the overwhelming favorite to add another championship title to her collection.

Also making progress into the medal race is world bronze medalist Sada Williams of Barbados who ran a time of 51.48 secs to win a highly competitive second semi-final.

Roxana Gómez of Cuba ran 51.57 to take second place behind Williams and qualify with the third-fastest time, while Jamaica’s World Indoor bronze medalist Stephenie Ann McPherson also advanced to the final after clocking 51.65 to take third to Miller-Uibo in heat one.
In the men’s contest, meanwhile, Olympic and world finalist Christopher Taylor qualified for the final with the quickest time after posting 45.50 seconds to win the second of the two semi-finals.
The Jamaican who is searching for his first championship title, easily finished ahead of Asa Guevara of Trinidad and Tobago who ran 47.08 for second place.
Taylor’s Jamaican teammate Nathon Allen clocked 45.85 secs to take the first semi-final ahead of USA’s Bryce Deadmon who ran 46.63.
