There was a

great surprise in the semifinals of the men's 100 meter sprint

at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The Chinese

Bingtian Su

, with a record of 9s83, set the best time and became the first Asian to reach the final of this discipline that he was also left without his great favorite: the American

Trayvon Bromell

, third in his tie with a time of 10s, was left out of the definition in the queen of athletics test.

Su, with an Asian record, won the third series that had a photo finish.

He beat American Ronnie Baker (9s83) by nothing in a super fast race that allowed Italian Lamont Jacobs, third with 9s84, and South African Akani Simbine, fourth with 9s90, also advance to the final.

In the first series, American Fred Kerley (9s96) and Canadian Andre De Grasse (9s98) qualified for the final and Jamaican Johan Blake (10s14) was left out.

And in the second, in which Bromell failed, those who won the ticket to the final were the British Zharnel Hughes (9s98) and the Nigerian Enoch Adegoke (10s00) after taking the first two places.

Bromell, the fastest in the world this year (9s77) achieved the same time as Adegoke, but the judges, after examining the finish photo for several minutes, decided that the African had crossed the line one thousandth before the North American (995 versus 996).

The final will be played this Sunday from 9.50 in Argentina.
