Louis Rollins, meanwhile, comes in with PB of 7.59 secs and will battle it out in Heat 2, with the likes of Joshua Braverman and Jaylan McConico also aiming to progress to the final.

Notably, World record holder Grant Holloway and former national champion Daniel Roberts, the two fastest men in the world this season –are not participating, which creates an opportunity for other competitors to shine.
