Gemili powers into final

June 23, 2012 17:24 pm

Teenage star Adam Gemili was again impressive as he powered into Saturday evening's men's 100m final at the athletics Olympics trials by winning his semi from Harry Aikines-Aryeetey in 10.20s.

Five-time champion Dwain Chambers also advanced after finishing second behind Simeon Williamson in the next heat, with a photo-finish required to separate the pair, while James Dasaolu and Mark Lewis-Francis were also among the automatic qualifiers.

Only Gemili and Dasaolu have the current 'A' standard of 10.18s and can therefore secure their Olympic place by finishing first or second in the final.
