LONDON - Former TCU All-American Justyn Warner advanced to the semifinals of the men's 100-meter dash Saturday at the Olympic Stadium. Representing Canada, Warner earned one of the automatic qualifying slots in his heat and posted the ninth-best time among qualifiers with a personal best run of 10.09. The semifinals for the 100-meter dash takes place Sunday at 1:45 p.m. Central Time.
Warner was able to control his fate in the race with a quick start that saw him ahead of the field for the first 50 meters. He was eventually passed by Ryan Bailey of the United States and Ben Youssef Meite of the Ivory Coast, but was able to hold off a charging Kemar Hyman of the Cayman Islands for the third and final automatic qualifying spot in the third heat.
Warner was a three-time All-American for TCU in the men's 4x100-meter relay. The Markham, Ontario native was a five-time Mountain West Conference champion across indoor and outdoor track.
