DOHA, Qatar – Puerto Rican Wesley Vazquez has put himself in an excellent position to take the men’s 800m title at the 17th IAAF World Athletics Championships in Qatar.

The Spanish-speaking country entered three 800m athletes and Vazquez will start the final as the fastest overall qualifiers.

Vazquez ran 1:43.96 to beat Kenya’s Ferguson Cheruiyot ROTICH 1:44.20 in semi-final 1 of the event on Sunday (29 Sept).

Donavan Brazier of The United States of America, 1:44.87 and Amel Tuka (BIH) 1:45.63 were the other semi-final winners.

Vazquez, who is not the event favourite, is very confident going into the final. 

“Impossible “is not a fact; it is an attitude. Thank God for everything, thank you for blessing me with the pass to the Fine,” he said on social media.

Vazquez qualified for the semi-final after finishing third in his heat with a time of 1:45.47

Ryan Sanchez, 1:54.46 and Andres Arroyo, 1:46.75 were the other Peurto Ricans, but they exited at the first round.
