The French, Méba-Mickaël Zeze, Pablo Mateo, Ryan Zeze and Jimmy Vicaut, also qualified for the final (this Sunday at 9:12 p.m.) with the second best time in the semi-finals (38′'17) and will try to clinch a medal to forget the frustration of the Eugene Worlds in July, where the French team was disqualified for bad relay transmission.

The French 4 x 100 m women's relay also qualified for the final (Sunday, 9:22 p.m.) by winning its series (43′'24).
