Jamaica’s Akeem Bloomfield made his first IAAF World Athletics Championships final after coming through for third, in 44.77 seconds to claim one of the non-automatic spots.

Trinidad & Tobago’s Machel Cedenio ran aggressively to win in a season’s best 44.41 seconds, knocking out pre championships favourites Michael Norman.
