100m national record holder Ferdinand Omanyala equalled the national record as he qualified for the semi-finals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Omanyala clocked 10.01 which also equalled his personnel best in finishing third in heat one won by Canada’s Andre de Grasse.
After the good run in the heats Omanyala thinks he can run even faster.
“I think I can run faster in the semi-finals tomorrow (Sunday),” Omanyala said after his race.
Omanyala was the lone ranger for Kenya in the 100m heats after Mark Otieno was suspended hours to the heats.
Otieno was found guilty of doping violation.
