After slowing down in the middle of the semi-final due to a cramp, Fred Kerley’s hopes of completing a sprint double at these track and field championships were dashed. On Saturday, the silver medalist at Tokyo 2020 led a 1-2-3 finish for the United States in the men’s 100-meter dash.

Men’s 200-Meter Finalist Stars at The 2022 World Championships in Track & Field
Any predictions for the men’s 200-meter final?
It was a lightning-fast, nail-biting race to the finish for the medals.
Lyles, the defending 200-meter world champion, breezed past his heat on Tuesday, July 18 in a time of 19.98 and then won the final in a world-record time of 19.62, edging off Olympic silver medalist Bednarek, who ran a season-best time of 19.84, for the second automatic qualifying spot.
Jereem Richards (19.86), a bronze medalist from London 2017, and Luxolo Adams (20.09), from of South Africa, advanced as fastest losers from their semi-final thanks to Lyles’s strong performance.
After missing the podium in his senior debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games in 2021, where he ran the second-fastest time of the day (19.71), 18-year-old Knighton is still a serious chance for the podium. Aaron Brown, who qualified for the men’s 200-meter final slightly behind Knighton in 20.10 despite Andre De Grasse’s injury, will represent Canada in the race.
After qualifying in second place in 19.92 behind Alexender Ogando, who decreased his Dominican record from the heats to 19.91, Joseph Fahnbulleh will also be on the blocks on Thursday. Fahnbulleh won the 100- and 200-meter NCAA crowns in June.
Fahnbulleh, a Liberian, will be competing in his second straight championship after the Tokyo Olympics, with the hope of bringing home the country’s first-ever medal from the Worlds.
