Coverage of the 17th IAAF World Athletics Championships #Doha2019 is brought to you by #Puma:puma red logo

Bahamian Steven Gardiner led a Caribbean sweep in semi-final two winning in a season’s best 44.13 seconds here at the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019.

Gardiner, a silver medallist at the London World Championships, felt satisfied with his effort.

“It was a pretty good run, thank GOD for that,” he said. “I just wanted to go out there and focus on my lane, not go out too fast but at a good pace and qualify for the final.

Grenada’s Kirani James has run three races this year and has gone sub-45 on every occasion.

His journey is developing into a great comeback story and the Grenadian, who was second behind Gardiner in a season’s best 44.23, was grateful for making another world championship final.

“I knew Gardiner was going to run fast,” said James.
