Jamaica will be sending the trio of Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir into the finals of the men’s 200-metre race on Thursday.

Usan Bolt and Yohan Blake both qualified for the finals of the men’s 200-metre race following their heat victories in the semifinals Wednesday.

Blake won Heat 1 in 20.01 seconds, .01 seconds ahead of American Wallace Spearmon and France’s Christophe Lemaitre.

Bolt won his heat as well, finishing with a slightly-slower time of 20.18 seconds.

Jamaica’s Warren Weir also qualified for the finals with a time of 20.28 seconds.

Two Caribbean sprinters were disqualified at the outset, including St Kitts and Nevis’ Antoine Adams and the Bahamas’ Michael Mathieu.
