The evening session of day 1 at the IAAF WYC saw a couple more qualifying rounds and had the build of the final of the men’s 100m.
Rivaldo Leacock (BAH) 51.35 and Jauavney James (JAM) 52.38 PB advanced to the second round of the Men’s 400m hurdles.
Leading the way is Ryusei Fujii of Japan with 50.87, a World Youth Lead.
In the women’s section, Junelle Bromfield (JAM) 58.89 is in to the next round with the 3rd fastest time.
Jamaica's Leon Clarke 1:52.64 qualifies for the next round in the mens 800m.
In the semi finals of the men’s 100m, a bit of disappointment as the region failed to produce a finalist for the event. Highest finisher from the round was Xavier Angus 10.61 for 11th place.
The final of the men’s 100m, however, featured 2 athletes from Brazil, Japan and Great Britain with Germany and Canada occupying the other spots.
The night belonged to Abdul Hakim Sani Brown of Japan who lowered the CR to 10.28 to take gold. Brazils Derick Silva 10.49 took the silver and while Rechmial Miller 10.59 took the 3rd spot on the podium.
