Lightning fell for the first time on the Olympic stadium in Tokyo, this Sunday. And this, before the grand final of the 100 meters, scheduled for 2:50 p.m. Trayvon Bromell, the announced favorite, continued the momentum of Saturday and, already disappointing, this time he fell by the wayside. However aligned in the half the less raised, he could not take one of the first two places of the race. Preceded to the thousandth of a second by Enoch Adegoke (10”00), the world’s best performer of the year placed third and left the track with his head down. Zharnel Hughes (9”98) won the series.
But it was not the Briton who made the best impression before the grand final at 2:50 pm, as the third semi-final was supersonic, with an astonishing Su Bingtian. The Chinese dominated the race to sign a 9”83 which is none other than the Asian record, of which he was co-holder (9”91). Ronnie Baker ran as fast as he did but had to give him up first place by a hair’s breadth. Note that Lamont Jacobs is past time, since third in this half. The Italian simply signed the European record in 9”84, erasing the joint mark of Vicaut and Obikwelu (9’86).

It’s over for Vicaut, 5th in his half
