Isaac Makwala Returns From Illness, Qualifies for 200m Final

Athletics- World Athletics Championships- Men's 200 Metres Final- London Stadium London Britain

Makwala could not run in the mens 200m heats on Monday after he threw up at the call room just before the race.

In a spectacular, if not freaky, twist of fate on Wednesday evening, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) granted Makwala a special qualification race, allowing the athlete to run solo in front of a packed stadium in an attempt to qualify for the 200m semifinal.

But the manner of his exclusion from Tuesday night's 400m final still rankles. "I am still motivated to break that record." he said. It was a tough week for myself, so after the 400 metres there was quite a lot of people that felt I didn't deserve it.

"I am heartbroken", he said.

Makawalas quarantine time ended at 14:00 hrs local time today and he was then declared fit after a medical examination to run a solo race. I was ready to run a 400m alone. "Mentally I was very positive going in to this race".

On the profit side, the company posted net income of $20.9 million, or $1.18 a share, down from $26.4 million, or $1.45 a share. Tiaa Cref Investment Management LLC cut its position by selling 1,609 shares a decrease of 1.9% from 03/31/2017 to 06/30/2017.

"I wish to thank the IAAF for giving me another chance and the crowd is so unbelievable".

"To be honest with you it really did upset me a bit", said van Niekerk.

"I work just as hard as every other competitor and show everyone respect but I don't believe I got the respect I deserved after the 400".

"This week is the flawless time for us to honour him". It took place in chilly temperatures and torrential rain, but Makwala delivered.

Cheered on by a vocal London crowd, Makwala had to beat a time of 20.54 seconds to reach the semi-finals.

Under two hours later, Makwala finished second in his semifinal, clocking 20.14 seconds to qualify third fastest for the final. Steven Gardiner, 21, of the Bahamas was a clear second in 44.41 and 20-year-old world junior champion Abdalelah Haroun of Qatar blasted through at the end to snatch bronze in 44.48.

The track and field world yearns to anoint Van Niekerk as the next face of the sport, to fill the void of Bolt's imminent retirement.

Tuesday's race was won by Olympic champion and world record holder, Wayde Van Niekerk, who - in the week, was described as the "new superstar of athletics".

And the hanging around may have contributed to his performance as he squeezed through to the 200m final as the second of two fastest losers in 20.28.
