Isaac Makwala Will Run 200m Time Trial Tonight To Advance To Semifinals
Details on the trial are still being finalized, including whether or not Makwala will bump any of the already-qualified athletes out if he advances. If confirmed this will give Makwala one last chance at taking down 400m world record holder Wayde van Niekerk at a distance that arguably favors Makwala.
Update: The IAAF has published an article clarifying details of the time trial, including the fact that it will be contested at 6:40 PM London time tonight, before any of the track events start, and it will take place in his originally designated lane, number seven. The article also clarified that no athletes will be bumped out of the semifinals.
