Former Texas A&M track and field star, and silver medal winner at the 2020 Olympic Games, Fred Kerley, advances to the 100M semifinal round at the 2022 World Athletics Championships.

Kerley raced in heat two and crossed the finish line in 9.79 seconds – the fastest overall time in all seven heats, and 0.10 seconds faster than the second overall time of 9.89 seconds from American teammate, Trayvon Bromell. Kerley’s heat two win automatically punched his ticket into the semifinal round.

Kerley’s semifinal race will take place tonight, at 8:00 PM CT, in which the top two finishers in each of the three heats, plus the next two fastest times, will advance to the 100M final later in the night at 9:50 PM CT. Kerley will race in semifinal heat two. While this is his first World Athletics Championship appearance in the 100M, Kerley is undoubtedly proving his championship pedigree. With another solid performance in the semifinal round, the 100M final should produce some 10-second fireworks in Oregon.
