Bryan Levell, Jamaica’s lone solider in the men’s 200m, ran a personal best to book his ticket in the final.
Despite almost a two-hour wait because of rain, Levell, who ran from lane eight, led from start to finish and crossed the line in 20.34.
“It was a long wait in the call room, about an hour and a half, so I had to keep myself warm to come out here and do my best.
“It’s a great feeling, knowing that I didn’t make the final last year, and to come back and make the final with a personal best,” said the Edwin Allen star sprinter.
