Jamaica's Veronica Campbell Brown rounded out the medalists with a 10.91, another season's best.

FULL RESULTS


Heat 1 - Carmelita Jeter is not messing around! She won heat 1 in another 10.83 and was followed by Jamaica's star Veronica Campbell-Brown in a 10.89. Both automatically advance to the final.

Potential Next Two in on Time: Santos (Brazil) 11.17,  Jones-Ferrette (ISV) 11.22

Heat 2 - Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price had a great start in heat 2 over the rest of the field and ran away from the pack with a 10.86.  Allyson Felix snuck in for a close 2nd place to secure her spot in what should be an insane 100m final.  Kelly-Ann Baptiste of Trinidad and Tobago may be in on time with her third place finish but we will have to wait and see. 

Potential Next Two in on Time: Baptiste 11.00, Okparaebo 11.10 (NR)

Heat 3 - Heat 3 was a ridiculously close finish as USA's Tianna Madison battled it out with Nigeria's Blessing Okabare who both finished with a 10.92, a personal best for Okabare! Okabare had a great surge coming into the last 15 meters to power through to the final. Murielle Ahoure, the third place finisher came in with a 11.01 to qualify for the final along with Kelly-Ann Baptiste of Trinidad and Tobago. Both will qualify on time. 

Next Two in on Time: Baptiste 11.00, Murielle Ahoure (CVI) 11.01
